Admissions Apply


CES is fully enrolled for the 2021-22 school year. Keep and eye out for the 2022-23 school year admissions application, which will be posted on October 1st.

Application Process

Create an online account on our application platform, complete and submit your application, and submit the application fee hereDeadline: January 31, 2022, 5pm. We will accept applications following the deadline for waitlist consideration.

After applying, our admissions director will reach out to you to set up a tour and meeting (adults only) with our Director and/or Assistant Director.

Decision letters and contracts are sent out on March 10. A signed contract, accompanied by an enrollment deposit, ensures a child’s placement for the fall. When the number of applicants exceeds the number of spaces, waitlist notifications will be sent, and families will be called from the waitlist as spots become available. Current and alumni families as well as children of staff are given admission priority.
