Application, Application Fee, and Report Cards
Before a student visit will be scheduled, we must receive the Application for Admission, the Application Fee of $50.00, and copies of the applicant’s report cards for the last two years in addition to this year’s most recent report card. If the application is for Kindergarten, submit copies of summaries or progress reports. The Application Fee is not refundable.
Visits are from 9:00 A.M. until 11:30 A.M. Please register for a visit day early, as available days are limited. The applicant will attend classes at his/her grade level. Kindergarten applicants will visit in the Kindergarten classroom and participate in activities at Kindergarten and pre-school level. Throughout the visit, we observe each applicant’s response to the activities at Canterbury.
Give the Confidential Teacher Recommendation form to the applicant’s current teacher. Also, provide a stamped return envelope. Recommendations are confidential and must be mailed directly from the teacher to Canterbury School. Faxed copies are not accepted. We will send an acknowledgement of receipt directly to the teacher.
Once we have received the Confidential Teacher Recommendation, you may schedule a testing date. Complete the testing application form and return it with the non-refundable $50.00 testing fee. You will receive a confirmation with the date and time for the testing. Applicants are expected to be functioning at or above grade level in the basic curriculum subject areas.
Return the School Policy with the non-refundable $300 Registration Fee. The policy and fee must be returned within one week to reserve the open space for your child.
