Campus tours and parent interviews will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the months of September and October.
Please plan on being on campus for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. During that time, you will be lead around the School by one of our current students, and then you will meet with a member of the Admissions Office for your parent interview. We look forward to meeting you, and for you to learn more about Carlthorp School!
These individual tours and parent meetings provide an opportunity for us to answer your initial questions about our community, and to have you learn more about our admissions process. Following this visit, families will receive access to our online Kindergarten application.
In order to schedule your tour and parent interview, please fill out an Inquiry Form, and follow the instructions that are sent to you from the Admissions Office.
December 9, 2023 SIBLING Student Readiness Assessments
January and February 2024 NEW FAMILY Student Readiness Assessments - January 6, January 20, and February 3. Specific assessment details will be shared as they become available with all applicant families.
January and February 2024 We also plan to invite applicant parents to join us on campus for our fun and interactive Prospective Parent Coffees. In December 2023, parents will receive an invitation to select their preferred session.
Grade-level applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year following a parent tour and interview. Families who have submitted completed applications by January 15, 2024 will have the greatest opportunity to be considered on our March decision date for the following September. Families that apply later in the cycle will be considered for openings that arise throughout the Spring and Summer, as needed.
November 2, 2023 Parents interested in applying for their child for Grades 1-6 for the 2024-2025 academic year may join our Grade Level process starting November 2, 2023. Please fill out an Inquiry Form,and follow the instructions in your confirmation e-mail to schedule a tour and parent interview.
Prospective students will be invited to undergo an admissions assessment once student openings are determined, typically beginning in February of each year.
Students who are assessed are selected from the applicant pool, and may be offered admission or be picked to enter the Wait Pool. Carlthorp School strives to select students who are the best “match” for the class, and for the space that has become available. We do not keep a ranked list in our Wait Pool.
