We encourage prospective families to come visit the school beginning in mid-September. Your appointment will include both a tour and an interview, and you should allow approximately an hour and a half for the visit. Please call the Admission Office at (617) 244-4246 to schedule your visit.
In addition to the tour and interview, there are a number of other opportunities to get to know the school during the admissions process:
Each fall, Newton Country Day hosts two Prospective Parent Coffees
. During these informal morning events, members of the Admission Office and faculty members answer questions and help prospective parents get to know the school.
• Each year, Admissions hosts an Open House the first Sunday of November
so that prospective students and parents may come to know our dynamic community and learn about our balanced program of academics, arts, athletics and service.
• We also offer optional Shadow Days
as an opportunity for prospective Middle School students to visit classes and meet current students and faculty. Designated dates begin in November and run through February. Keep in mind that these Middle School shadow days occur during the admission process and not post-decision.
The preliminary application form must be submitted before you schedule a Shadow Day, but you have until January 15th
to submit all other parts of the application (essays, recommendations, etc.).
Accepted applicants to Upper School will have the opportunity to visit classes in the spring.
• Regional Receptions
, hosted by current families, take place in January and present informal occasions to meet with members of our community in smaller settings.
