Campus Tours and Class Visits
Individual Tours and VisitsDuring your visit, you will have the opportunity to meet with an admission counselor and meet our faculty and students. You can observe classes, see our athletic facilities, view an art exhibit, and enjoy the spacious 62-acre campus. It is important to share as much information as you can about your child’s interests with the admission staff so that we can design a visit and tour that meets your specific needs.
We would be glad to arrange a campus visit and tour for you and your family. These visits are scheduled individually by the counselor responsible for your child's grade/program. To arrange your visit to Country Day, please select the appropriate admission staff member who will be working with your child’s grade or program. Individual tour times vary according to the school's academic calendar. You can also request a visit online.
On the second Wednesday of each month at 8:45 a.m., the Admission Office offers “Walk-In Wednesdays” for families considering Early Childhood (18 months) through grade 4. No appointment is necessary, and you should arrive no later than 8:40 a.m. at the Admission Office, located in the Upper School building.
A hosting program is available for prospective students who have applied to grades 5-12. The program is designed to give applicants the opportunity to spend a day attending classes with a current Country Day student in his or her current grade level. This is a great opportunity for visitors to meet Country Day students and to explore the academic, fine arts, athletic, extra-curricular, and technology programs at Country Day.
Hosted students are provided with a snack, lunch, and a tablet PC to use during their visit. Visitors may choose to bring a book or small notebook with them. Visitors to the Middle and Upper School should dress according to our Middle School Dress Code. Shadowing can be scheduled for any regular school day and should be scheduled at least a week in advance. Visitors are matched with student hosts based on the information provided in the application.
To schedule a host day for students entering grades 5-12, please contact Elizabeth Habig at (513) 979-0236 or firstname.lastname@example.org .
Class visitations are available for students in grades 3-4 who have been accepted. We recommend half-day visits for these students that can be scheduled in the morning or afternoon. These visits typically include lunch. Students will have the opportunity to participate in all classroom activities that will include academics as well as specials such as art, world language, physical education, and music.
Those students interested in a class visit must arrange a date and time with the Admission Office three to five days in advance to ensure that there are no tests being taken on that day, no field trips have been scheduled, and that faculty have time to prepare for the student. This advanced notice makes it possible for the prospective student applicant to have an informative as well as enjoyable visit.
