As the Admission Office begins to prepare to welcome prospective families to campus this fall, we are delighted in the meantime to offer a few ways to become acquainted with us now.

Submit an Inquiry

Please click here to give us a little more information about you so that we may be sure to communicate with you when our 2022-23 application is available and our fall campus visit schedule is in place.

Schedule an Individual Appointment

During the summer break, as we prepare for all that the 2021-22 academic year allows, we remain available to answer your questions. You may call (203) 801-5608 or email us to arrange a time to chat with an Admission Counselor.

Schedule an On Campus Tour

Please fill out our Inquiry Form before calling our office at (203) 801-5608 to schedule an on-campus tour.

Special instructions for on-campus visits:
    • Because tours will go into buildings that house our students, prospective families coming to campus are required to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within 24 hours prior to the visit.  Please email Cathy Schinella with this information the day before your visit: cschinella@countryschool.net. Families arriving without this proof will not be allowed in the buildings.   
    • Please bring a mask to wear while inside our buildings; masks may come off when outdoors in the context of 6-foot distancing.

Self-Guided Virtual Campus Tour


We encourage you to experience our 75-acre campus virtually by utilizing our interactive map from the comfort of home.






We look forward to connecting with you soon and encourage you to return to this page in late August to begin the admission process. And please remember to complete our Inquiry Form to receive information about future events and next steps.
