The Clariden School’s admissions process is intentionally thorough. Our goal is to ensure students admitted to Clariden are up to the rigorous academic challenges of the program. Previous school records, entrance interviews, assessments, and a student’s application are used to determine admission.

The Clariden School accepts students who have a strong desire to learn, encompass good moral character, have exemplary behavior and acceptable attendance records, exhibit evidence of potential success in a school program, and have defined academic goals.

We encourage you to visit Clariden to tour our beautiful 23-acre campus and meet our wonderful faculty and talented students. There is no better way to understand the culture of a school than to spend time with the people who bring it to life every day.
