K4/K5 Applications (Bogota Residents only)
K4/K5 ADMISSIONS INTRODUCTION AND AGE REQUIREMENTS

Dear Prospective family,

Thank you for your interest in CNG for your family. The information below is a guide to our

K4 and K5 process for families that are already living in Bogota. This is a multi-step

application process that begins in November of 2020 and ends in March of 2021. 

 

While we have historically strived to be rigorous in our calendar and not make any changes

to the dates we publish on our website, this is a special year. There are many moving parts

and fluid external conditions that may require us to make adaptations to our K4 and K5

application process along the way. Any adjustments made will prioritize the health and well-

being of applicants and their families, while maintaining our same parameters of excellence

in our admissions process. 

 

If you would like to receive notifications regarding the process and any adjustments that we

make, please sign up HERE

 

We would also like to invite you to follow us on social media:
