Please note that the 2022/2023 application process will not open until the end of February 2022.

To apply to CNS, please fill out the online application below. Once we receive your application, we will email you an invoice for the application fee. You can pay the fee online or mail/deliver a check to CNS at 309A Highland Road, Ithaca, NY 14850.

Application fees are $25 per child and $10 per additional sibling and are non-refundable. Please make checks payable to CNS. 

Placement is handled on a first-come, first-served basis, based on when the application fee is received. Payment of the application fee does not guarantee enrollment.

Our target enrollment notification date is March 15th, at which point we ask for a deposit of one month’s tuition to officially accept and hold your child’s class space. Deposits are refundable through March 31st for families who choose to withdraw, but no deposits will be refunded as of April 1st.

Students not immediately offered a spot will be placed on the wait list and informed of any enrollment opportunities that arise.


NOTE: If you recently applied to CNS using our online application, and you have not yet received an invoice or a confirmation email, please contact us.
