Welcome to KapKa. As you come to know our school better through your online research, attendance at our Open House and participation in a tour and/or coffee chat, you’ll discover why our kids are so happy to be here. With our small class sizes, our amazing teachers, and our progressive approach to education, we meet kids exactly where they are academically, socially and emotionally, thus fostering a sincere and powerful love of learning. We are so happy you are interested in our school, and we look forward to getting to know your family better throughout the admissions process.
The following steps should be completed in order to be considered for admission:

Registrars will contact families to inform them of their status by Tuesday, March 12, 2013.
Admittance is confirmed upon receipt of $250 registration fee and first tuition payment by Friday, March 22, 2013. If payment is not received by this date, the space will be offered to waitpool families.
At KapKa, all admission decisions are made without regard to a child’s race, religion, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, family structure, or financial status. We believe that all children are gifted and testing is not an effective way to measure a child’s potential. As such, we do not use formal testing to inform admission decisions.
It is important for us to be able to fully meet the needs of each child that we accept into our school. Therefore, we only offer placement to children whose needs we believe we are fully able to support. Children must be five years old by August 31st in order to be considered for kindergarten placement.
Applicants are selected with an attempt to balance for gender, and preference is given to siblings of existing KapKa students, alums and children of KapKa staff.
