Admission Process


Parent Visit

We welcome the opportunity to meet you and answer your questions about our program. Please contact us to schedule an appointment with Shauna Smith, Head of School.

Admissions Decision

When your child is determined to be a good fit for Capital Day School, a contract is offered by the Head of School.  In the event that a contract is not offered, clear communication about the basis for the decision will be given.

Completed Application

Return the completed application found in the information packet along with the $75 one-time, non refundable payment. The application and fee must be received prior to the student visit. 

Return Contract

Complete the student information sheet and sign the contract. Return the  contract to the office with $150. This is a one-time contract fee and will be subtracted from the first tuition payment after student enrollment.  Contracts are written for one school year or the remainder of the school year if a student enrolls after school has started. 

Student Visit

Students will come to the school and meet the teacher. A screening will be given and the students will have an informal interview. Lower and Middle School students will need 2 teacher references and a transcript of grades for the current year.

Tuition Assistance

SSSome families qualify for financial aid and awards can be granted. Families seeking assistance will need to write a formal detailed letter to the Head of the School after the admissions decision has been made. CDS Preschool is a licensed childcare facility with the State of KY and accepts C-C-CAP.
