Come Visit

Private Tour

A great way to begin to understand our culture and community is to see our students and teachers engaged in our day-to-day rhythm. We have found that tours with individual families work well here, and these typically happen on weekday mornings. Many prospective families enjoy touring on Friday after attending chapel, for you can see our whole community together -- you'll even see some Central moms, dads, and grandparents attending chapel. We gather weekly on Friday at 8:30am in our gym. 

Shadow Day

After you've submitted your child's application and we have received records from their current school (if applicable), our teachers are eager to interact with your child! We like to see all our applicants in action, with same-age peers in a classroom context. Shadow Days are also a chance for applicants to get to know our school better.

          3K applicants come twice: to Shadow Saturday on January 5, and a developmental screening on a different morning.
          JK applicants spend an hour in a classroom with same-age peers on a normal school day.
          SK applicants spend a morning in a classroom with same-age peers on a normal school day.
          1st-6th Grade applicants spend an entire day with same-age peers on a normal school day.

Our students love to host visiting JK-6th Grade applicants, and they are treated with tender care during their time here. Applicants engage in classroom activities and also participate in a screening session with a faculty member.
