Welcome from the Office of Admission
We thank you for your interest in CAIS and invite you to explore our website, visit us, and to get to know our school and our community. Please come and see our mission to “Embrace Chinese, become your best self, and contribute to a better world” in practice. In preparing students for the complex world into which they will graduate, our dual language Chinese English immersion program is truly “life changing. world changing.”
We know that the process of selecting a school for your child can be a daunting one. We are here to help. An overview of the steps involved is available on the Admission Process page. Our admissions season for the school year 2020-21 has started. Please sign up for one of our CAIS 101 events to get a big picture overview of our school and hear stories from students, teachers and parents. The tours will offer a deep dive into the program and include visits to classrooms to see teachers and students in action.
I do hope I will have the opportunity to meet you at an upcoming event or tour.
In the meantime we invite you to complete an online inquiry as a first step in your CAIS journey.
We look forward to sharing CAIS with you. Please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
