The Right Fit


 

Since its founding, The Cambridge School has stood as a unique community of people passionate about pursuing a holistic education concerned with the education of the whole child.

The Cambridge School seeks students of exemplary character who demonstrate the ability to thrive in an academically rigorous program, whose parents' goals and values align with those of the school, and who show potential for service and leadership opportunities.

The Admission Committee evaluates each applicant on a variety of factors, including academic records from current schools, student and parent questionnaires, recommendations from current teachers and administrators, interviews and performance on standardized and individual assessments. (Children applying to K Prep and Kindergarten participate in both individual assessments and group assessments.) For all grade levels, the admission process is rooted in finding the best match between prospective families and The Cambridge School.

The focus of Admission Office at The Cambridge School is centered upon getting to know each student and family while making sure that you have the opportunity to know Cambridge. As with all admission decisions, the match between the student and The Cambridge School is of primary importance.



The Cambridge School admits students of any race, color, national, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic, or other School-administered programs.
