Every prospective student will be assessed for grade readiness and fit. Family interviews, review of records and assessments will be used to determine acceptance.
With the exception of kindergarten applicants, prospective students will be asked to spend a full-day visiting Cabrini, interacting with potential classmates and teachers as well as participating in classroom activities. During their visit, the applicant will complete math and language arts assessments. Applicants will also be observed for their social interactions with the teachers and classmates. Incoming kindergarten applicants will be invited to a kindergarten interaction session.
If a visit day cannot be scheduled (such as during summer break), the applicant will meet with a Cabrini teacher or administrator to take appropriate placement tests and participate in an informal interview process. In this case, conditional acceptance may be offered.
