Admissions Online

Welcome to The Child's Primary School and thank you for your interest in our school.  We invite you to make an appointment to visit our campus for a personalized tour if you have not already done so. If you have already taken your tour or are ready to apply now and tour later, see below for "How to Apply".

Request More Information / Schedule a Tour

If you desire more information than is available on our school's website, click here to Request More Information / Schedule a Tour and our Admissions Office will contact you to answer your questions and/or schedule your tour.  We would very much like to meet you and encourage you to take a tour at your earliest convenience.  Our priority application deadline for the 2021-2022 school year is approaching on February 1, 2021.  We anticipate limited openings in most grades, so classes may fill up based on our priority application pool.  Note that for Kindergarten applications your child must turn 5 years old by October 31, 2021 to join the Kindergarten class and we do not have a TK program.

How to Apply

Our Online Application simplifies submission and provides parents the ability to track the status of your child's application. To begin the Online Application, first Create an Account. You will then receive an email containing a verification link. Once your email address has been verified, log in to your account and Create A New Student Application for your child selecting the appropriate application school year and grade level.  To submit applications for more than one child you will create new student applications under the same account and your general parental information will be pre-filled.  You will then have the flexibility to log in and out of your account and access your open application(s) until they are submitted.

A non-refundable fee of $125 must be submitted with each application. If you have not paid the $125 fee, your application has not yet been submitted to the school. You will receive a confirmation email once your application has been submitted to us.

After submitting the application, you will be able to track your application status by logging in to your account. In addition, you will be able to print the completed application, monitor when the school receives teacher recommendations and any applicable supplemental forms and, if necessary, reprint the forms.  

We appreciate your interest and are here to assist you in any way we can. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Schuyler Twyman, Director of Admissions, at 858-576-2120 or email admissions@tcps.org. We hope to receive your application for 2021-2022 prior to our priority application deadline on February 1, 2021 or soon after to apply during our rolling admission cycle.
