CAK PreGame Preview
High School Admissions Open House
Thursday, October 8, 2015
5:00 p.m.
(ballgame to follow at 7:00 p.m.)

Thinking about CAK as an option for high school in the next year or so? Come spend an evening with us, and get a glimpse into campus life. The event includes student and parent testimonials, a tour of the high school, Q&A with administration, and tickets to the CAK home football game that same night (WVLT game of the week vs. Clinton High School). Admissions staff will be present during the open house and also at the game (look for the "Admissions" tent), so you will have plenty of time for additional questions or concerns to be addressed.
THIS IS AN RSVP EVENT! Please email Monica Rogers (mrogers@cakmail.org) with your name and the number of people in your family who plan to attend with you. RSVPs accepted until Wednesday, 10/7/15.


Weekly Tuesday Tours!
Elementary School and ELP*

We open our doors on specific Tuesday mornings, October thru April, for future elementary school families to see CAK through our parents' eyes. This is a standing appointment with tours led by one of our elementary parent ambassadors along with a member of the admissions staff. Please park at the Campus Center building (adjacent to the tennis courts), and meet the tour leaders in the lobby at 8:25 a.m. This 45-60 minute walking tour begins promptly at 8:30 a.m., and guests are asked to be prepared for cold or wet weather. IF THERE IS ANY KIND OF WEATHER DELAY OR CLOSURE, THE TOUR WILL NOT OCCUR THAT DAY. Dates for 2015/2016:

  • coming soon!

An RSVP is helpful but not required; please direct communication to Monica Rogers at 865/690-4721 x155 or mrogers@cakmail.org.


Annual Campus-Wide Admissions Open House (ELP* thru High School)
November 2015 (check back for exact date)
8:30 a.m.

Future families are welcome to attend this yearly event, designed to give a full look into a day in the life of CAK. CAK DAY! originates at the Campus Center building (home of the Admissions office) where guests will be greeted by members of our administration. Information will be shared about admissions, academics, arts programs and athletic opportunities. We will then board a bus and visit all three academic buildings allowing time for touring and questions at each. Mid-way through, guests will enjoy a brief coffee break while hearing about our lunch program and the admissions process from a parent's perspective. Please plan to be on campus for about two hours. Note that this is not a drop-in event, and we will do our best to start on time and stay on schedule. The event will conclude at (or before) 10:30, but guests are welcome to leave at any point.

As with all of our events, parents can attend with or without their children; please use your discretion and base your decision on what best suits your family. Strollers are not advised on the bus. Note that in a group setting every effort will be made to accommodate specific questions; however, individual needs might be best asked in confidence either via phone, email or pre-arranged appointment with the admissions director. Please see below for information about scheduling a private tour, which some choose to do instead of or in addition to CAK DAY! or the CAK Mornings.

An RSVP is helpful but not required, but questions can be directed to Amy Williams at 865/690-4721 or awilliams@cakmail.org.


CAK Mornings!
Middle and High School Admissions Events
9:00 a.m.
Dates Vary

Our middle school and high school has a morning or two set aside for visitors to enjoy a cup of coffee and hear from that particular building's principals and staff. Following a brief word of welcome, group tours will take place allowing for classroom viewing and questions. CAK Mornings start at 9:00 a.m. in the lobby of the respective building and last about an hour. Dates for 2015/16: 

  • coming soon!


Private Tours & Shadow Days

Attending a group event, such as those listed above, isn't required. We understand that everyone has different schedules, needs, and preferences. To best accommodate you, personal, one-on-one campus tours are scheduled throughout the school year — during the school day — allowing for specific questions to be asked and interests or concerns to be addressed. Schedule your tour today by contacting the admission office:

• Amy Williams: 865/690-4721 x190 or awilliams@cakmail.org
• Monica Rogers: 865/690-4721 x155 or mrogers@cakmail.org

The opportunity to shadow a CAK student is open to applicants who are rising 6th - 11th graders. Shadow days are not an option for elementary students. Shadow days are scheduled by appointment through the admissions office for families already working through the process. Please contact Amy Williams, who will assist in making the necessary arrangements with the appropriate principal. Be aware that some days are not open for shadowing due to special events or off-campus trips, and shadow days are not offered the first two weeks or last two weeks of school in either semester.

NOTE: It is parental preference as to whether or not you choose to bring your children to an open house event or tour. The admissions office does not have a policy relating to this option.
