Thank you for your interest in Seattle Country Day School. At our school, we endeavor to provide a personalized and informative experience for all families. The goal of the admissions process is to determine if a prospective student is a good fit, therefore creating a successful learning experience for your child.
Admission to Seattle Country Day School is selective and based on a review of criteria that supports our school’s mission to develop the abilities of gifted children with high intellectual and creative promise.
The Admissions Committee takes great care in accepting children whom we believe will thrive in this differentiated learning environment. In making an informed decision regarding an applicant, the
Admissions Committee utilizes information gathered from:
- Student’s IQ test with a full scale score in the top 3% (WPPSI IV or WISC V, depending on age)
- Application and parent questionnaire
- Student records and transcripts
- Teacher evaluations
- Student visit
The Admissions Committee’s primary goal is to ensure that each child is in the most rewarding and productive atmosphere, and is among intellectual peers. Please take some time to explore our website
and admissions process. I hope to meet you in person soon. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
