Step 1: Assessment
Every child applying for admission to Carden Arbor View School must complete an assessment. The purpose of the Assessment is to ensure the child is ready for our curriculum on many levels. While children can be intellectually ready for a challenging academic program, they may not be emotionally or socially ready for such an environment.
For kindergarten children, this assessment is geared toward determining the child's readiness to spend a full day in a classroom program.
For children in first through eighth grades, the assessment is geared toward determining whether the child will be successful in a demanding academic program.
The assessment must be scheduled with the school. Before the assessment of each child, parents must fill out an application and pay a $100 Assessment Fee. Please note the Assessment Fee is non-refundable.
Step 2: Offer of Admission
Once the admission process is complete, the school will make a determination about admission and communicate with the parents the status of their child's admission.
Depending upon the enrollment period, admission may be offered immediately and the child encouraged to join the class in the current year. However, admission may be offered for the following school year, or an admission offer may be held until mid-March; when students re-enrolling must register for the new school year and the grade level openings are finalized.
Prior to admission, we encourage children in first through eighth grades to spend a half- or full-day in the classroom they may join. This visit often helps families decide if Carden Arbor View is best for them.

Carden Arbor View School appreciates the level of commitment and the many sacrifices tuition poses for families that entrust us to help raise their children into successful and caring adults. We constantly balance the need to increase tuition with the need to pay our teachers and staff competitively, so that we can continue to provide the quality education that you expect.
With this in mind the Board of Trustees has chosen FAST by Independent School Management, to process our financial award applications. FAST applies a precise school specific formula to their process and we think you will find their website easy to navigate. They are also available to answer any questions you may have.
Please understand that the funds we use are limited and often fall short of need. With this in mind CAVS has committed to using a fair and mission appropriate approach that protects tuition from rising too quickly by assuring that we only help families with true need.
Financial Aid application for the 2017-18 school year runs from December 2016 through March 2017. Please visit the FAST website for more information and to begin the process.
