Students applying to Country Day must meet the following deadlines for submitting the application for admission, applying for tuition assistance and scholarships, and confirming their intent to enroll. The Admission Office will begin reviewing applications in mid-November and will continue to admit new students until programs reach capacity. Waiting lists will be established once and grades reach capacity. To join the waiting list, families should contact the Admission Office regarding the application process for your child’s grade or program.
Please refer to the chart below for admission application deadlines:
|Admission Application Deadline||Dec. 1||Feb. 15|
|Need-based (PFS) & Merit-based Assistance Application Deadline||Dec. 1||N/A*|
|Admission/Enrollment Contract Notification||Jan. 10||Mar. 1|
|Tuition Assistance Notification||Jan. 10||N/A*|
|Confirmation Deadline||Feb. 1|
* Families may apply for tuition assistance consideration during Regular Decision. Awards will be made on a rolling basis and as long as funds remain available.
Demand for space in the pre-primary programs (Early Childhood through Pre-Kindergarten/Montessori) is often greater than the capacity we can accommodate for new applicants. Families applying for children to these programs will be reviewed on the timeline above and then a rolling basis throughout the year until programs have reached maximum capacity. Pre-primary applicants will be reviewed according to application date within each timeline category. Should space remain in the Pre-Primary program after the start of school, applicants will be reviewed for admission according to application timing, affiliation to the school, and birth date. Children cannot attend the Early Childhood program prior to turning 18 months of age.
