How do I enroll in your school? St. Albans Country Day School adheres to a non-discrimination policy, and the school will not reject the application of any student based on sex, race, creed, color, religion, nationality, or ethnic origin. Parents of applicants are asked to fill out a wait list application form and pay a non-refundable $25 fee for the wait list as an act of good faith. This fee will be paid yearly, per family, until the youngest child reaches kindergarten. This will establish a place for the student on the wait list. (The wait list application is found on our website under the Admissions tab.) Once you are on our wait list, parents will receive a "waiting list update” letter in January of each year. The enclosed card must be signed and returned along with the $25 fee, if applicable, to the school by the indicated deadline in order to stay on the list. If the card and wait list fee are not returned, or if the school does not hear from the parent, the student will be dropped from the wait list. If the card and fee is returned and an opening occurs, parents will be notified, and the student will be evaluated. Prospective students are asked to visit class for a day and to complete the basic battery of the Stanford 10 Achievement Test. If admissions criteria are met, the student will be accepted. For further questions please contact the Registrar, Ms. Mindy Sakoi via email or call (916) 782-3557.
How do I enroll in your pre-kindergarten class? Prekindergarten applicants must be at least FOUR YEARS OLD by September 1 of the year applying to be admitted to the pre-k program. It is the school’s position that children need to have reached a maturity level that reflects the social skills and attentiveness, which this program requires. Pre-k applicants and parents will be asked to visit the pre-k class and meet with the teacher in February. Prospective pre-k students are not formally tested, but they will be evaluated by the pre-k teachers. The decision to admit a student to the pre-k program rests with the prekindergarten teachers and the Head of School.
