Current CDS students applying to Independent Schools

Please complete the Country Day School Release form and list the schools you will be applying to on your child’s behalf. Please check “Independent School Recommendation Form” on the release. Also, if your child has a sibling at a specific school you have selected then please include the sibling application deadline date to ensure timely submissions of the required forms. Completion of our CDS Release Form will enable us to send required forms to the schools that have you have selected.

Many independent schools in the area are using a software system called Ravenna Systems to help coordinate their application processes. If you are applying to a school that is using this software then please use the following e-mail address, isrec@countryday.org, when asked for your child’s current teacher’s e-mail address. Please do not contact teachers directly for a recommendation.

Country Day School teachers will complete a common recommendation form for those schools not using the Ravenna software.

Please contact our Independent School Recommendation coordinator, Dorothy McIntire, at dmcintire@countryday.org or at 703-356-4282 with any questions you may have regarding this process moving forward.

The deadline to submit Independent School Recommendations for 2017-18 applications is December 1, 2016.
