Admissions

Inquire & Apply

Thank you for your interest in enrollment at Caribbean School.

Caribbean School seeks students able to benefit from a challenging college preparatory experience. Students in all grades are admitted on the basis of an entrance examination, maturity, school records, interviews, and other overall measures of future academic success. As an independent school, Caribbean School does not discriminate on the basis of sex, creed, race, color, national or ethnic origin.

Beginning in January of the year, potential students may register for the next school year which starts in August. Enrollment is also open for new students for Pre-Kindergarten; limited seats are available in other grades. After passing the entrance examinations, available seats are offered.
