The admission application for the 2024-25 school year is now available for kindergarten through grade 12 students. Apply online today.

Cincinnati Country Day School serves highly motivated and high-potential students who can contribute to and benefit from its educational programs. Students represent a variety of interests and backgrounds. They have a positive attitude toward scholarship, exemplary personal qualities, and numerous achievements in their extracurricular pursuits.

Admission decisions are based upon a composite review process by faculty and staff of both subjective and objective information including: academic readiness and qualification, standardized testing, on campus evaluation and observation, maturity, affiliation with the school, commitment to long-term and on-going enrollment, diversity and gender balance, teacher recommendations, parent and student profiles, and appropriateness of the match between the family and school.

Application Procedure

  1. Submit an application
  2. Schedule an evaluation (for applicants 18 months through grade 2)
  3. Register for admission testing (for applicants grades 3 through 12)
  4. Receive admission notification from the Admission Office
  5. Confirm enrollment

The process of applying for tuition assistance is separate from the admission application process. We will begin the process of evaluating the admission application once your admission application is received, the application fee is paid or waived, and we receive your complete set of records and recommendations.

Cincinnati Country Day School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age (40 or over), national origin, ancestry, or military service/veteran’s status in the administration of its educational programs and policies, admission decisions, tuition aid programs, employment practices and benefits, athletic, or other school administered programs.
