  • Step 2: Schedule an Interview

    After you have submitted your application, you will receive an email inviting you to select a date and time for your family interview. Interviews for elementary school applicants and their families will be in person and include a short tour of campus. Campbell Hall continues to adhere to all federal, state, and local COVID-19 guidelines to protect the health of everyone on campus. If you feel that an in-person family interview is not in the best interest of your family, please contact our office to make alternative arrangements.

    The family interview includes the applicant as well as parent(s)/guardian(s) and is typically 45-60 minutes. We strongly recommend that you schedule an interview appointment as soon as possible. Please Note: Applicants reapplying to grades 1-5 who completed an interview during last year's admissions season will not need to interview again this season.
  • Step 3: Evaluations (Kindergarten and Grades 1-2 applicants only)

    Kindergarten
    • One-to-One Readiness Evaluation: Students applying to kindergarten will also complete a kindergarten readiness evaluation on the day of the family interview. The kindergarten readiness evaluation measures your child’s cognitive, language, motor and social-emotional abilities in relation to typical growth patterns. It is designed to measure how your child meets developmental benchmarks in comparison to most children who are the same age. The evaluation is administered by a trained Admissions Associate and usually lasts about 35-45 minutes.
    • Kindergarten Mini-Day: Kindergarten applicants also participate in a “Kindergarten Mini-Day.” They will be socializing with other applicants, listening and responding to a story and a song, and participating in choice play time. K-Mini Days take place on specific Saturdays and last an hour. After you book your family interview you will receive an email with instructions on how to schedule your child’s mini-day.
    Grades 1-2
    • Students applying to grades 1-2 will complete a readiness evaluation in a group setting together with other applicants. They will participate in classroom activities and have the opportunity to socialize with other applicants. The evaluation will take place the morning of Saturday, Jan 21, 2022 and will last an hour and 15 minutes. After you book your family interview, you will receive an email with additional information about the evaluation.
