Students denied admission to 2nd through 11th grades must wait one year before re-applying to Calhoun. All application materials (application, application fee, transcripts and letters of recommendation) must be submitted by the published deadline as reapplications are treated as new applications and are considered without reference to the initial admissions decision.
*Exceptions may be made for current families and will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Admissions Committee.

Books and required school trips are included in tuition. Lunch is included for 2nd-12th grade students, but 3's-1st grade families send lunch from home. A light breakfast is also available for 2nd-12th grade students.
After school programs (ASP), including extended care during the school day, and summer camp programs are not included in the tuition. For families receiving tuition assistance, the cost of in-house after school programs is reduced by the same percentage as the tuition award. Annual Parent Association dues ($50 per family) are additional.
