CAIS 201


The CAIS 201 series explores the many aspects of CAISWith 78 teachers (not counting administrators and staff) and 520 students involved in 11 grades across three divisions, it’s no surprise that CAIS is a complex organization. Informative as CAIS 101 sessions are, the CAIS experience could never be completely covered in the admission process information sessions. Recognizing that families enter CAIS and naturally have much more to learn about what’s ahead for their children, Head of School Jeff Bissell worked with the Admin Council to develop the CAIS 201 education series.

Throughout the year, CAIS leaders spotlight various aspects of the CAIS experience, showcasing in particular the sweep of program from ECD through Middle School. The 2017-2018 school year calendar includes:
