Thank you for your interest in Westchester Country Day School. The application process is designed to provide the best possible opportunity for a student and his or her family to understand Westchester. This process also enables the faculty and the Admission Committee to understand each student and determine whether Westchester’s program can meet the student’s needs. The application process is not complete until the school receives all of the following:
- The application and fee
- Academic Evaluation from current teachers
- Transcripts and report cards from current or prior school
- Admission screening
- School visit
These requirements may be completed in any order. The Admission Committee, consisting of faculty and administrators, will review completed applications. The first round of Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten acceptances will be mailed in early February, and all other acceptances will be on a rolling basis. In cases where there are more qualified candidates than spaces, qualified candidates will be put into a pool of acceptable applicants waiting for spots to become available. Admission decisions will be based on the needs of each class and the best interest of the school. Consideration will be given to the following: students with exceptional abilities and talents, children of full-time faculty, qualified students for whom a spot was not available the previous year, siblings of students currently enrolled, children of alumni, or students offering ethnic and cultural diversity or gender balance. The process is designed to help the school evaluate candidates, therefore enhancing the possibilities for proper acceptance and placement decisions.
To schedule a visit or for more information, please contact the Admissions Office at 336.822.4005.
