Please be aware that student applications, including all required supporting documents, must be submitted on, or before March 1st of each year. For example, if you would like for your student to be considered for the next academic year, their complete application packet must be received on, or before, March 1st, of that calendar year.
Once your student's complete application packet has been received, you will receive a confirmation of such from the Admissions Officer, or his representative. If necessary, an interview may then be scheduled, if one has not already been conducted, and/or you may be invited to visit and tour our campus.
Also, our education program begins with Kindergarten. In order for a child to be eligible to apply to join CRICS, they must achieve 5 years of age on, or before, August 1st, of the academic year for which they are to be considered.
Application Approval Process
Once the March 1st deadline has passed, all complete application packets will be reviewed by the "Admissions Evaluation Committee." Each complete application packet will be reviewed and considered based on at least the following criteria:
- Classroom size, as it relates to student count and our ability to add more students to that class
- Academic background of the student candidate
- Family's proposed commitment to CRICS, in number of years anticipated to be spent at our school
- Academic goals of the family for their student and the student's demonstrated ability to achieve said goals
All applicants will be notified of the committee's decision on, or before March 31st of the year for which the family is applying. Should specific circumstances arise that would prevent CRICS from achieving our March 31st decision commitment, and that are beyond the ability of CRICS to control, the family of the applicant will be notified and informed of the circumstances of the delay.
Should you be unable or unwilling to wait until March 31st for our decision, it is strongly recommended that you make alternative plans to enroll your student, or students, elsewhere for their educational needs.
Since all subject areas are taught in English, every student needs to be able to understand and communicate using English. Students who are not native-English speakers must undergo an ELL assessment process to ensure their English levels are sufficient for success in the classroom.
