We’re so pleased that you are interested in The Caedmon School for your child. Given the pandemic, our admissions process will look different than in a typical year, but meeting with and getting to know your child and your family as unique individuals and introducing you to The Caedmon School remain at the heart of our mission and are the most important parts of our process. Our tours, open houses, and parent and child interviews will all take place via zoom meeting. We understand that online meetings may not be the easiest for young children and will remain flexible with scheduling additional meetings, as needed.
