Information for Families of New Students

Even as our physical campus is closed, the Admission Office is maintaining a virtual presence for all families. Please contact us with any questions, requests for additional information, or other needs by email or by phone at (203) 801-5608.

We will be in touch about opportunities for our newly enrolled students and families to connect virtually with other Country School families and students through our Host Family Program as well as connect with faculty, division heads, trustees and even one another. Stay tuned for details about these virtual visits and events, and please know that we’ll be excited to welcome you to campus when the time comes!

A very warm welcome to you as parents of our new students! We hope that the information provided below will help you begin to prepare for your child's transition to Country School. In the coming weeks and months, we will update this page as additional information becomes available and eventually you will migrate to the Back-to-School resource page available to all 2020-21 Country School families. If you have any questions, please contact the Admission Office, or (203) 801-5608. 

For your information and in case you wish to have it for your records, please note that to access your completed 2020-21 enrollment contract at any time, you may return to the Parent Portal and click the small arrow to the right of your name in the upper right corner to display a dropdown menu; then choose Files & Forms and click Show completed forms. If you need any assistance with this process please let us know.
