Where to Begin
The admissions process at Jacksonville Country Day School is designed to match students with the mission of the school. The process includes a tour for parents, a school day visit for students in grades 1-6, and a student evaluation or testing. Our hope is that the process will help families, students, and the school make choices about the best placement to ensure success once students are enrolled.
Applications received by January 11, 2013, provide the optimal chance for placement. Classes fill quickly. All other eligible candidates will be placed on a wait list and called as openings occur.
