High School Admissions 2018-2019

Our admissions process evaluates potential students in terms of preparedness and emotional maturity instead of looking simply at age. Students with a track record of strong academic achievement and emotional maturity may begin taking college preparatory courses early. Advanced Placement courses are available to students as early as their first year.

Only 20 students per grade level are admitted each year. There is no guarantee of space availability once the school year has begun. Keeping class sizes small is a huge benefit for students transitioning into Cambrian Academy, but it also requires us to rely upon the commitments made by each family admitted. Therefore, our enrollment contracts include specific provisions stated in very plain English. There are no tricks or unfair policies, but we do expect parents to read and understand what they are committing to before accepting a space. Space is limited.

Cambrian Academy representatives make visits to local middle schools each year. Middle School students receive a 30 minute presentation covering Cambrian Academy academics and student life. They also receive an invitation to our November or January Open House.

We have moved into our new campus. The remodeling required for safety is complete. The aesthetic remodelling is still underway, so we have not yet set a November Open House date. It may end up being in early December...BUT IT WILL BE WORTH THE WAIT.
