    Admission decisions are based upon a combination of factors that include admissions testing, previous school records, teacher recommendations and our observations of the child. Equally important is the information you (parents) share with us about your child on the Parent Questionnaire. Our goal is to work together with families to ensure that each child admitted to The Campus School has the opportunity to be successful. A strong match between the characteristics of the child and the philosophy of the school is the foundation for success.

    Admissions decisions are review by the Admissions Committee and are based solely on the availability of space and strength of the match between the child and the school.  Late and mid-year applications will be considered as space allows.
