We know that picking your child’s elementary school is one of the bigger decisions you’ll make for them, we feel privileged that you’re considering Cascadia to be part of their story. We look forward to getting to know your children’s passions, personality, and learning needs, so that we can determine if Cascadia is a good fit for you and your family.
Our application process is simple, and is facilitated through the admission platform, Ravenna. The application must be submitted by January 31, 2019 with decision letters being sent March 15, 2019.
Note: After January 31, 2019, we will move to a rolling admissions for certain grades to fill any open spots.
A tour is the best way to get a feel if we're a good fit for your child. Our tours are done in small groups and can be scheduled without applying. You can skip this step and move to the application if you prefer.
Submit full application
To apply you’ll need an account with Ravenna, the application fee is $75. Depending on what grade you are applying to, you’ll need to submit transcripts, references, and parent essays.
Child + family interviews
In addition to your child's assessment, we will conduct an interview with you. Your fit and buy-in to our program is as much a part of our decision-making process as anything else.
Tuition & After School Fees
Tuition at Cascadia is a flat rate with no additional giving required. This ensures that you know upfront the cost of sending your child here. Below are the details for incoming students for the 2019-2020 academic year:
Enrollment down payment: $1,950 due March 29, 2019. This amount is applied towards the total tuition amount owed, not on top of it -- think of it as a 10% down payment, not an added fee.
Payment plan options:
Full amount due by Sept 1, 2019
Ten Month plan starting Sept 1, 2019
Quarterly plan starting Sept 1, 2019
Siblings: Younger siblings are given priority admissions and receive a 10% reduction in tuition.
Throughout the year, we offer a broad package of extracurricular classes that are completely optional. Classes range from teaching coding or robotics to learning chess or karate. Each class has a different cost, but the average is $300 per class each semester. Here is a sample week taken from the current semester:
Monday: Chess Class with Chess 4 Life, Debate Club with Cascadia faculty
Tuesday: Karate Class with Eastside Family Karate, Speech Club with Cascadia faculty
Wednesday: Coding and Robotics with Tech Venture
Thursday: Science Investigation with Mad Science
Friday: No enrichment classes are scheduled for Fridays
* Please note that any child enrolled in a class must also have a care plan from below.
Engaging childcare is offered everyday from 3:20pm-6pm. If your child is not enrolled in an enrichment class, then this time will be filled with both structured and unstructured playtime, as well as homework groups led by our staff to help reenforce the concepts taught during the day. There are three care plans that you can choose from:
Annual: $2,750 paid upfront for a full school year of unlimited after school care. If used regularly, this is the most affordable option at a per hour rate.
Monthly: $350 for one month of unlimited after school care. This option must be renewed every month.
Half hour punch-cards: $250 for 25 hours of care. Your card is deducted at half-hour intervals.
