How to Apply

Our January 31st deadline has passed for students who completed the application and checklist material guaranteeing them to receive a March 1st admission decision. If you would like to apply after January 31st, we want to advise you that you may be applying for a space in the wait pool.  We have a wait pool rather than a wait list and if a space becomes available, we select the next best candidate for that space.

During the admission process, you will meet people that will help shape your family’s future at Miami Country Day School. Our personal approach to the admission process allows us to get to know your family and explore why MCDS is the top choice for so many families. Together we ensure our mission and core values match your vision for your child’s educational journey. Our admissions application takes 20 minutes to complete.

Early Decision is available to siblings of current students, children of alumni, and families who select Miami Country Day as their first choice, in grades which are entry points. For more information, and to request your application be considered for Early Decision, contact your admission officer.

We encourage you to contact our admissions team with any questions at admissions@miamicountryday.org or (305) 779-7230.
