St. Albans Country Day School is a highly academic, non-religious private school serving children in the pre-kindergarten through eighth grades. We accept applications for our wait list year round and encourage all who are interested in finding out more information about our programs, to participate in one of our monthly school tours and/or visit during our Open House.
Qualified applicants are students who are excited and engaged in the learning process, are working at or above their current grade level, have good citizenship and behavior, and have shown their ability to perform well academically. Additionally, children applying to either the Pre-kindergarten or Kindergarten programs must be 4 years of age (Pre-K) or 5 years of age (Kindergarten) as of September 1.
As openings occur, students are invited to visit their prospective class for a day as well as completing the basic battery of the Stanford 10 Achievement test (grades 1-8). Parents are asked for copies of past report cards and standardized tests, too. While visiting, students fully participate in all classes, they complete the assigned work, and teachers administer skill based screenings. After the visitation is complete, teachers give feedback, including observations about their interactions with others, work habits, and willingness to participate in classes. The Stanford 10 Achievement test is administered on a separate day and the testing time varies by grade level.
If you have further questions, please contact admissions director Ms. Mindy Sakoi either by phoning the school office or by email.
