Students interested in applying to grades 5-8 must submit our application and parent questionnaire, along with the $75 non-refundable application fee to the Admission Office prior to their interview and visit. Once all application materials are received (recommendations, transcript, interview and visit), the Admission Committee will meet monthly to make decisions.
Parent Interview & Student Visits
Children applying to 5th-8th grade will visit for one school day in their current grade. In addition, the Admission Office requests parents schedule an interview during your child’s visit day. Talking with you about your child is one of our most important parts of our Admission Process. Once your application is received, our Office will be in touch to schedule an interview.
Confidential Recommendation Forms
Two Current Teacher forms are required and should be completed after November 1. If possible, one recommendation should come from the student's current English/Social Studies teacher and one recommendation from their Math/Science teacher. These recommendation forms must be mailed to our Admission Office directly from your child's current school.
Parents should request their child's transcript from their current school. Transcripts and school administered testing can be uploaded to the application portal.
Students are required to take the Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE) administered by the Educational Records Bureau (ERB). Please contact email@example.com to schedule. Please check the ERB site (erblearn.org) for other dates and locations. Students must have their scores submitted directly to RCDS by using the ISEE test code 311700.
