Application to Attend KBS
Kempenfelt Bay School (KBS) seeks students and families aligned with the school’s Mission and Values and who present as having a very real chance of finding happiness and success in our environment. The admission process is designed to make determinations as quickly as possible about your child’s admissibility. Through the admission process, it is determined if your child is likely to succeed at and contribute to KBS. An aligned applicant is one who will both add to and thrive in our environment, and will, in addition to the academic life, take advantage of the opportunities available.
We encourage families who are interested in KBS to apply the school year before their intended start date, between October through May. An application during these months allows applicants to spend a day at KBS and experience life as a KBS student.
Applications for September 2020 are now being accepted. If you are interested in applying for the 2019-2020 school year, please contact the admissions office.
Step 1: Submit your application
Please complete our online application and submit the required supporting documents. These documents can be emailed to Christine Calderon, Manager of Admissions, at [email protected]
We require the following documents to complete the application:
- A recent passport sized photo
- The most recent school report from the current school year
- The final report from the previous school year

Step 2: Visit Day & Assessment
Upon receipt of an application, we will contact you within two business days to set a time for your child’s Visit Day.
The Visit Day will include time with KBS teachers and students in order for applicants to experience what attending KBS is like. During the Visit Day there will be an academic assessment. Formal preparation is not required for this assessment.
Applicants to grades 3 and up will also spend about 15 minutes with Ms.Calderon, having an open and friendly conversation.
At the end of the day, Ms. Calderon will be available to answer all of your questions.
