How to apply
Ready? Here are the steps
Step 1: Get started early
Applications are accepted throughout the year, but to receive priority consideration for the following school year, your application must be complete by Friday, February 16, 2018. Many classes fill up early in the calendar year.
Step 2: Inquiry
Step 3: Campus tour
Country Day evaluates each student based on a personal interview and visit with parents or children. Depending on their age, children may spend a day at school, meet teachers, and visit with future classmates.
Step 4: Application
We require a formal application that includes a parent statement, a student statement (for Sixth Grade and up), academic records, teacher evaluations, and scores on tests already administered. This application is completed online. In accordance with our personal approach, our Admissions Committee considers each student individually, and there is no standardized entrance test required for our school. There is a $50 non-refundable application fee.
Step 5: Classroom visit
- Students going into PreK to Third Grade: brief morning visit, with parents, in the classroom of their current grade
- Students going into Fourth to Eighth Grade: full-day visit, without parents, in the classroom of their current grade
Step 5: Review and inform
Application materials are reviewed by an admissions committee. Applicants whose completed application materials are received by the deadline of February 16 will be sent notification via US Mail on April 2.
Step 6: Enrollment
Once a student is invited to attend, an enrollment contract is offered. A signed contract and non-refundable deposit are required to hold a place in the class. Tuition is payable July 1.
