High School Admissions 2022-2023
APPLICATION FORM FOR 2022 - 2023 (2022-2023 available December 1)

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


With a program that provides both in-person and remote learning, the learning at Cambrian Academy continued uninterrupted. We reopened for in-person summer camp on June 15, 2020 and discontinued cohort separation on September 22, 2020. Our health and safety protocols meet and exceed those required by the Department of Health, while continuing to protect your medical privacy and educating our students and their families about which of the protocols or interventions rely on Informed Consent.

Current County guidelines still do not allow for non-essential visitors. We hope to resume in-person Info Sessions as soon as possible. In the meantime, parents who contact the school can receive a link to a virtual campus tour.

DECEMBER, 2021: We will soon be scheduling in-person tours on evenings and weekends. We will first be catching up with the inquiries that came in October-November.


An Open House happens on either an evening or weekend, and dates are posted when scheduled. This is an opportunity to visit the school, see a few of the classrooms, and visit with faculty and administration. Two or three students are usually present as guides. Access is somewhat limited because this is open to anyone.


Info sessions take place during the school day, and they are an opportunity to see classes in action. For security purposes, these are scheduled in advance. If you subsequently enroll your child, we are sure you will appreciate that we first identify all daytime visitors.

    Info sessions include
  • 20-minute presentation by the headmaster or a faculty member
  • 20-minute tour of classes in session
  • Full info packet with early application priority


  • Spaces currently open (at our discretion) may be reserved for new students whose application is received during November or December.
  • All currently enrolled families have until January 10 to confirm their desire to return in the coming fall.
  • After January 10, we begin reserving all remaining spaces: First, from Info Session families who have submitted a complete application in November or December. Next, from general public applicants who have submitted applications in November or December.
  • After that, we have rolling admission until all spaces are filled.
