Application Checklist

We’re so pleased that you are interested in The Caedmon School for your child. At the heart of our mission is honoring the individual and our admissions process is designed to do just that. We want to get to know your child and your family as unique individuals and what is important to you in a learning environment. Our events provide opportunities for us to get to know your family and to inform you about the exciting, rich, and engaging educational experience that awaits your child at Caedmon.

Given the pandemic and the potential for shifts in our safety measures, our admissions events during Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 will be mostly remote with the option of in-person child interviews and tours of the facilities for parents. If changes need to be made during the admissions season, we will be in contact with you. 

Below is a checklist of steps to complete our admissions process for enrollment for the 2022-2023 school year.  If you are interested in applying for the 2021-2022 school year, please email Jennifer Tarpley-Kreismer, tarpley@caedmonschool.org, to inquire about space availability. We can’t wait to get to know your family and to share The Caedmon School with you!

The steps below should be completed through our Ravenna portal.  Click each step for more details.
