STEP 2

Get to Know CAIS 

We highly recommend attending both CAIS 101 and an Information Session. These two events are designed to be different and complementary in presenting to you a rounded picture of CAIS.

CAIS 101

A one hour zoom event. This one hour presentation will bring to life CAIS values and the CAIS experience as seen through the lens of our students. Teachers, students and administrators will share true stories of learning in the classroom. Please book here for one of the following dates:

  • Thursday, October 15 from  9:30-10:30 a.m.
  • Saturday, November 7 from  2:00-3:00 p.m.
  • Wednesday, November 18 from 9:30-10:30 a.m.
  • Saturday, December 5 from 2:00-3:00 p.m.

CAIS Information Session

Preschool-8th grade. A one hour zoom event. This will provide a more in depth look at our program across divisions presented by our Directors and Head of School. These information sessions are available in October, November, December, 2020 and January, 2021.

Please sign up here

We look forward to “seeing” you soon. 

Please contact admission@cais.org for more information. 

STEP 3

Application

Here is the application link. After application, in your confirmation email, you will see a link to sign up for a one-on-one family meeting with Director of Admission, Linda Vann-Adibe. 

Seeing your child is an important part of our admissions process. In these unusual circumstances, there will not be the customary playdates on campus. Instead, we are working on some different ideas for how best virtually to get to know your child, bearing in mind their young age and being thoughtful about you as parents who are likely applying to other schools as well. More information will be forthcoming.

Notifications for the 2021-2022 school year admissions will be emailed in March 2021.

  • Preschool: Tuesday, March 9, 2021
  • Kindergarten-Eighth Grade: Thursday, March 18, 2021
