How to Apply

The Office of Admissions would like to inform our prospective Spartans that during these challenging times, we have modified our admission process as it relates to entry exams and assessments. We will be test flexible for the 2021-22 admission process and hold many virtual options for tours, testing, and interviews. Our Admission Officers are here to help and will guide you through your options.

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