List of 6 items.

  • Step One - Inquiry Form

    To begin the Admissions process, please begin by filling out an Inquiry Form. Once the Inquiry Form is submitted, a representative from our Admissions Team will contact you.
  • Step Two - Open House/Campus Tour

    Join us for one of our Open Houses or Campus Tours.  Open House dates are listed under the “Visit Us” tab of the Admissions section.  Campus tours are by appointment only and are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays, while our Assessment and Shadow days are offered on Wednesdays.  If an alternate time is needed please call the Admissions office to coordinate.  Upon completion of the Open House or a campus tour, an Admissions Checklist will be emailed to the family.  All items must be presented in completion on the day of the Admissions assessment.

  • Step Three - Application Form/Financial Aid

    Fill out the Application Form online. There is a $100 Application/Testing Fee per child which will need to be paid in full before the Admissions Test is given.

    If you would like to apply for financial aid please submit an application as instructed under the financial aid section on our Tuition page.  (Please note, you will be directed to create an account in Blackbaud Financial Aid Management if you have not already.) Your financial aid application will not be reviewed until your Calvary Day School admissions application has been submitted.
  • Step Four - Admissions Assessment/Shadow Day

    A representative from our Admissions Team will contact you to set up a day and time for your child(ren) to complete our Admissions Assessment. The assessment is grade appropriate and will vary in time depending on grade level. The assessment dates are each Wednesday. If an alternate time is needed, please call the Admissions office to coordinate.

    Applicants in grades 3rd-12th, if interested, may shadow a current Calvary student after their assessment or they may schedule a full-day shadow at another time. Full-day shadow opportunities are also scheduled on Wednesdays. 
  • Step Five - Review Process

    Upon completion of the Admissions Assessment, and if all information has been received, the Admissions Review Team will review the candidate's admissions assessment scores, transcripts, discipline record, and any other necessary files needed to make the best decision for all parties involved. 
  • Step Six - Decision

    Once a decision has been finalized, a member of the Admissions Team will contact the parent or guardian regarding how to proceed in the process.
