Families Applying for Grades 1–6

List of 3 items.

  • Application Deadlines

    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 will have the greatest opportunity to be considered on our March 12 admit date for the following September. Families that apply later in the cycle will be considered for openings that arise throughout the Spring and Summer.
  • Tours, Interviews, and Assessments

    After November 10, 2020
    Parents interested in placing their child(ren) in Grades 1-6 for September 2021 may join our grade level process starting November 10, 2020. Please fill out an inquiry form and email us to schedule a virtual interview.

    Prospective students will be invited to undergo an admissions assessment once student openings are determined, typically beginning in February of each year.

    Students to be assessed are selected from an applicant pool and a 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.
