Dear interested families,
Yes, we are still accepting applications! Although our regular application season has ended, we have a few openings in select grades.

Our building is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 shutdown, and our faculty is teaching online and our students are learning online. Our admissions office is working via email to accept and review applications for next year.

Normally, a tour or attendance at an Open House or Information Meeting is required as the first part of the application process so that families may understand the school mission and program. Now that the building is closed, we are not giving tours. Instead please email me and I would be happy to chat with you about Countryside in lieu of a tour.

Our applications are available here on our website and may be submitted to me via the following process:

  1. Scan or photograph each page and email to
  2. Send photo of your child to
  3. Ask your recommender to email the teacher recommendation directly to
  4. Mail your check for the application fee to the school

If you have any questions, please email me and I am happy to respond via email or set up a time to chat with you.

Thank you for your interest in Countryside School, and I look forward to hearing from you.
