Each family considering applying for admission to The Country School should attend, if possible, an Admissions Open House
so that we may introduce you to our campus, teachers, students, and current parents.
The application process shall begin when the online application is completed and submitted with the application fee. Upon submission of an application, the parents should notify the applicant’s current school of their intention to apply elsewhere. Upon application, we request specific information about the child in order to create a student profile. This information is kept confidential.
Below, please find a step-by-step guide to applying for admission at The Country School:
1) Schedule a visit with our Admissions Director
2) Complete our online application
and pay the $60 application fee;
3) Request that our teacher recommendation form be completed by your child's current teacher (Grades K-1 form
, Grades 2-8 form
4) Submit our student transcript form
(only required for grades 4-8) to your child's current school to request his or her academic records.
For Lower School (K-4) applicants, a 45-minute assessment with division head Kitty Davis is required. This is is fun and play-based format in which we can get to know your child and conduct a basic skills assessment. There is nothing you need to do to prepare your child in advance.
If your child is transferring from another school into grades 1-8, we will schedule with you a visit day where he/she will be paired up with a friend and attend classes. Visit days are an ideal time to complete the child's assessment.
