Notification of Enrollment Decisions and Scholars Program semifinalists for all applicants who complete admissions process by 1/26/14

ALL TESTING SESSIONS ARE BY APPOINTMENT.

Little Explorers, K, and 1st Grade Applicants: Each will have an individual appointment between 1/5/15 and 2/6/15, which is an evaluation by a trained member of the CFA teaching staff using a nationally-recognized, standardized behavior observation created by the Gesell Institute in New Haven, CT or the Get Set for School Assessment. Skills evaluated include language, memory, visual-motor skills, math and reading readiness, and visual discrimination.  As part of the application process, Little Explorers and Kindergarten applicants are also asked to visit and participate in the classroom on the same day they complete their assessment.

2nd through 12th Grade Applicants: These applicants must attend one of the testing sessions on 1/19/15 OR 1/24/15. Applicants will be administered portions of the Educational Records Bureau (ERB-CPT IV) achievement testing (reading and math tests as well as a writing exercise).  

Applications received after 1/16/15 are processed on a rolling basis.
