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 - Preview Day/Campus Tour

    Join us for one of our Preview Days or Campus Tours.  The dates of Preview Days 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.

    After attending a Preview Day or a campus tour, an onCampus login will be emailed to you with the admission checklist and process instructions.  OnCampus will be your portal for the admission process as well as the student/parent portal once your child is enrolled.


     
  • Step Three - Application Form/Financial Aid

    Complete the online Application Form. There is a $100 non-refundable Application/Testing Fee per child which will need to be paid in full before the testing/shadow day is scheduled.

    Your financial aid application will not be reviewed until your Calvary Day School admissions application has been submitted.
  • Step Four - Admissions Assessment/Shadow Day

    Once the date and time of your assessment has been confirmed, you will receive an itinerary via email. These are sent the Friday before your scheduled assessment. 

    Full day shadows opportunities are also scheduled on Wednesdays after testing. Shadow days are required for students applying during the school year. During summer hours, there will be an interview as well as the assessment. 

     
  • 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 an admissions decision has been finalized, you will receive notification by mail and through onCampus. If your student is accepted for enrollment,  a member of the Admissions Team will contact the parent or guardian by phone regarding next steps.
