Application Process

Apply to BCD

Berkshire Country Day School has a rolling admissions policy under which applicants are welcome and candidates are accepted throughout the year as space allows.

We know your and your child’s time is valuable, and we have a simple three-step admissions process:

Upon completion of all parts of the application process and admissions requirements, the BCD Admission Committee will review the candidate’s file and notify the family of its decision. In certain circumstances, we may ask for additional materials on a case-by-case basis.

Applicants can expect to receive a decision within a few days once the application is complete.

If concern about cost is one of your considerations, we are happy to work with you to find an affordable option. Our new FAIR SHARE tuition program, as well as traditional financial aid, offer access to our outstanding program for everyone.

We are also happy to schedule a student class visit or a shadow day, either during the application period or after acceptance. This is a great opportunity for your child to spend a day with peers, get to know the BCD teachers, and truly get a sense of what it will feel like to be part of the community here. These visits can range from a single class period or a full day. Students are matched with their current grade level so they may begin making friends with the children who will be their classmates.

Berkshire Country Day School admits students of any religion, race, color, sexual orientation, and national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of religion, gender, race, color, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, scholarship, athletic, and other school-administered programs.
