To Our Prospective Families,

Thank you for your interest in The Caedmon School, where childhood is celebrated! Caedmon offers an early childhood through Grade 5 educational model and an incredibly diverse and welcoming community. With our Montessori-inspired approach, students learn through play and develop perseverance and an intrinsic desire to pursue their passions and interests. At times, children work in mixed-age groups, encouraging older students to lead by example.

Here are just a few highlights of our outstanding program:

  • 40% international families
  • 25% male faculty
  • Spanish (all grades)
  • Latin (Grades 3 – 5)
  • Violin (K – Grade 3)
  • Exemplary Middle School placement (typically 3 choices per graduate)
  • Emotionally engaged and responsive faculty

We invite you to come visit us and see for yourself the joy in learning that our students experience every day. There is no need to apply before scheduling a visit. Tours take place during the school day and provide the opportunity to see our students and teachers working together in our bright, renovated classrooms.

Group Tours:
For applicants for our Beginners and Early Program (ages 2.8 through 4)

Individuals Tours
For applicants for Kindergarten through Fifth grade

We look forward to getting to know you and your child in the coming months!

Warmest regards,
