Annual Campus-wide Admissions Open House

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 {date not yet set for fall 2015}

8:30 a.m.

Future families are welcome to attend this yearly event, designed to give a glimpse into campus life at 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. 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 not requested, but questions can be directed to Amy Williams at 865/690-4721 or


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:

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 for families already working through the admission process. Please contact Amy Williams, who will assist in making the necessary arrangements with the appropriate principal. Please note 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.
