Criteria for Enrollment

Enrollment decisions at Cannon School are based on an assessment of an applicant's ability to succeed in a challenging, yet supportive college preparatory environment. Academic records, teacher recommendations, entrance testing results, writing samples, and a student interview form the basis of this assessment.

An applicant's file is presented to the Admission Committee only when the entire application process is complete. Cannon School welcomes qualified students without regard to gender, national origin, race, religion, or sexual orientation.
