Apply For Admission

We are so pleased that you are considering 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. We understand that online meetings may not be the easiest for young children and will remain flexible with scheduling additional meetings, as needed. We look forward to getting to know your family during the coming months!

Our application for admission for Fall 2021 will be available on Friday, August 21st through our Ravenna hub, which you can access via the APPLY button below. You will be asked to submit an inquiry and create an account with a password, which will allow you to access and complete your application for admission. You can fill out an inquiry here. If you are interested in applying for the current 2020-2021 school year, please email Jennifer Tarpley,, to inquire about space availability. 

We also invite you to register for one or more of our completely optional interactive experiences to get to know us better:

      • Community Story Time
      • A Curiosity Class
      • Fall FestIval
