Do you find yourself asking …
What kind of person do I want my child to be?
What is the end goal of my child’s education?
Is my child reaching their full potential?
Does my child’s teacher truly know my child?
Is this all that education is meant to be?
What happens after my child gets into college?
You are asking the right questions.
Finding a school where your child can flourish can too often seem an impossible task. We all want an environment where our children are known by their teachers as individual learners and are supported by a community of likeminded families with the same hopes for an upcoming generation marked as much by their intellect and ability as they are by their wisdom and virtue.
Like you, our founder, Jean Kim, was asking the same questions.
"Like you, I was looking for a place that would partner with me as a parent to help my children thrive and flourish intellectually, spiritually, relationally, physically and emotionally."
A Place to Flourish
Transitioning to Cambridge.
Although classical education has been around for millennia, it is a fairly new phenomenon in the modern educational marketplace. After a tour, many parents are eager to apply, but ask, “How will my student catch up in things like Latin, Grammar, and Singapore Math if he or she hasn’t started from the beginning?”
Ensuring a Smooth Transition:
A Cambridge Education is particular. It is vertically aligned, rhetorically oriented, and distinctive. New learning for each year is built on the former knowledge and skills gained in the grade prior. Entering mid-stream is not impossible, but there are specific ways to make the process positive for your student and your family. We encourage to you apply early in order to meet first round application deadlines. Having your admission decision by early spring leaves your student, especially those applying for 4th grade and up, with plenty of time and opportunities to transition successfully.
During the summer prior to matriculation, the student will complete the following:
Once the school year has begun, we offer group tutoring, individual tutoring, and peer tutoring for students requiring additional support. Our highly skilled teachers will monitor student progress and make recommendations in order to ensure that each student is supported in this new educational endeavor. We hope that a transition to Cambridge is a carefully thought out decision for your family and one that is considered with ample time to take advantage of the scaffolding offered lateral entry students to adjust academically and culturally.
If you are applying for the following grades please be mindful of the following prerequisites and preferences.
Wondering What The Lateral Entry Process Is Like At Cambridge?
Ivy is the mother of 3 students here at The Cambridge School. She has a Kindergarten student, a 6th grader, and 9th grader. Ivy and her family just moved to San Diego from Illinois 3 months ago. They are new to Cambridge and have experienced the ‘Lateral Entry’ process with their older students. I sat down with Ivy to hear her Cambridge story. Here is what Ivy had to say.
