Admissions Procedures and Policies
Depending upon the age of the student requesting admission, a variety of methods are used to assess compatibility of the student and family with the learning community. Interviews, visitation, and individualized informal assessments are utilized. Parental goals must be compatible with the Country Day School philosophy and methods. Students with learning problems are sometimes admitted but must agree upon obtaining resource services while at the Country Day School. Transcripts from previous schools are requested and considered.
Please call for availability in all programs. Openings often become available during the school term. Children of all races, religions, and nationalities are welcome.

Plan a Visit
As you begin your search to find the right school for your child, there are many ways you can get to know us better. You will find plenty of information on our website, but we encourage you to visit us in person.
KLA Schools are staffed with caring, fun, and dedicated professionals. Participating regularly in professional development experiences, our teachers are constantly learning about the best ways to teach our students. Observations of each child are taken throughout the day in addition to notes reflecting on weekly projections. Our educators are continually analyzing which ways children learn best, as well as which teaching styles are most effective.
Facilitators in their interactions with children, our educators work to align children’s interests with the learning domains in loving, nurturing, and positive ways. They support students in feeling safe, loved, and valued. Our curriculum addresses the whole child, including academic, physical, social and emotional domains.
We encourage children to think deeper and ask questions as they research different theories. Teachers and children alike invest in researching and collaborating together in order to be a part of each other’s learning process.
