Admission Statment
 

Kids at desk
Children attend the Campus School from kindergarten through 6th grade. To be eligible for the kindergarten program, children must be five years old by September 1st. For families with younger children please contact the Center for Early Childhood Education -- infancy through preschool at www.smith.edu/forthill.

Applications for the following school year are accepted from September 1. First consideration is given to applications received on or before March 1. Applications received after March 1 are considered as they arrive and as openings are available.

To fulfill our mission as the College's laboratory school, the Smith College Campus School seeks to achieve a diverse student population in which varied backgrounds, perspectives, and traditions are represented. Our goal is to enroll and educate students who have a range of learning styles and are able to work independently and as cooperative members of groups within the context of the regular classroom. (Our programs are not well suited for children who require substantially separate educational services.)

Admission consideration is also given to children of Smith College employees and to siblings of children already enrolled in the school.

The Admission Committee will review each applicant in the context of these goals. Parent and student interviews, academic history, and previous school records are all considered in the admission process.

THE LEGACY OF MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. AT THE CAMPUS SCHOOL:
The community assembly we have each year on the Friday before MLK Day  is a poignant assembly that is planned each year by the faculty. This year, teachers chose to focus on Dr. King’s words of compassion and what it means to hear and imagine another’s perspective. They focused on elements of Dr. King’s words, “Compassion and nonviolence help us to see the enemy's point of view, to hear their questions, to know their assessment of ourselves.”  Click here for more.
