Berkshire Country Day School has a rolling admissions policy– we welcome applicants year round and accept candidates as space allows. 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. Applicants can expect to receive a decision approximately two weeks after the application is complete.

The Process for Applying to BCD

The Process for Applying to BCD

Step 1:       Prospective parents visit campus and/or attend admission events.

Step 2:       Admission applications are submitted; see below for what’s needed for your student.

Step 3:       Students visit the campus for a “Shadow Day” with a buddy. The general application form should be submitted by this time.

Typically Preschool and Kindergarten visits are a few hours or a morning long, and Grade 1-8 visits are for 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. Admission interviews are completed, and assessments are begun.

Step 4:       Any further assessments are completed, and final paperwork is sent in if not previously submitted.

Step 4:       Admission decisions are usually returned within two weeks. If accepted, families will be offered a contract and instructions will be included for enrolling your child.

Step 5:       Welcome to you and your child to BCD!
