Families are welcome to submit their completed application form between Tuesday, September 5, and Friday, December 1, 2017.
Families can choose to apply online
, or download
an application form and mail it to us. Online applicants may submit payment by credit card; mail-in applicants must pay by check. The fee is waived for Early Steps applications and those applying for financial aid. Family and child photos are strongly encouraged.
Once we receive your application, the Admissions Office will contact you within three weeks to schedule a morning C&C Info Session
. This visit will give you a thorough look at our school, including a presentation about our program, a tour of our campus, and a mingling session with current parents. We will also schedule a 30-minute parent interview. Please know that Info Sessions tend to fill quickly; if we receive your application after all admissions events are booked, we will be happy to consider your application, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to schedule a morning tour for you.
If desired, in addition to the daytime tour, parents applying for the 5s and 6s are welcome to attend our annual Open House
on Thursday, November 16, 2017, from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. At the Open House, parents will receive a tour from our current 13s (eighth-graders) as well as have the opportunity to speak with teachers and current parents. There is no need to RSVP for the Open House, nor do you need to submit an application in order to attend.School reports.
If your child attends an independent school, we ask that you request the school to submit a completed ISAAGNY form (required)
. You may also provide a current school report (optional). Applicants coming from public schools are required to submit the most recent school report. All school reports should be submitted no later than January 12, 2018
In the interest of saving paper, we strongly encourage your child's school to email the ISAAGNY form and/or school report to firstname.lastname@example.org
The ERB is not required
with an application for 5s and 6s, and we do not take the results into consideration even when applicants provide them. City and Country has never required the ERB for children of this age. Your child's school report
and his or her school visit
will usually provide sufficient information for an admissions decision.
Your child's visit
is required as part of the admissions process. The majority of child visits for the 5s and 6s will take place on Saturday, January 27, 2018
. (The date was previously set for January 20, but we changed it due to the march planned for New York City on that date.) In December, you will receive an email confirming the date and time of your child's playgroup.
