Welcome

Thank you for looking at CNS. We have found that the opportunity to see a range of schools can help best inform parents in finding the best match. We hope that you will find the time to review our website, talk to parents, explore our resource pages and drop by for a conversation with directors to see learning in action. The sights, sounds and experiences that a aay at CNS provides is the best reflection of our program and approach. We look forward to welcoming you!

  • Early Admissions

    Early Admissions applications are received and reviewed on a rolling basis from November 15th-January 30th each year. Applications received on or before November 15 at 10:00 AM are put into one pile and, if the number of applications exceeds the number of open spaces, drawn at random. Admissions decisions are made within 15 days of the receipt of an application. A completed enrollment contract and non-refundable deposit are due within 15 days of acceptance. If you choose not to submit a contract and deposit, your child can be considered again as part of regular or extended admissions.
