Required Forms for Admission

Annual Forms

An Annual Health Form must be completed for each student every year before the child's first day of class. For those children with allergies or medical conditions that require medication be kept or dispensed at school, a separate Medication & Allergy Action Form must be completed by a doctor; this form is only required for those children with allergies or medical conditions.

Additional forms including the Parent Contact Information Update and the Authorization and Waiver Form will be made available via our online Parent Portal. If you need to update your emergency contacts, authorized pick ups, or other information provided on the Authorization and Waiver Form for the current school year, you may email Lynn Hall directly at lhall@countryday.org so we may update our records. You may update your family's contact information via the Parent Portal at any time. There is no need to resubmit the form within the same school year.

Health Form

**There is no need to complete the Authorization & Waiver Form for children attending CDS in 2019-20 at this time as we will be gathering this information via a Parent Portal form in the coming months**

New Students

Proof of Identity

In addition to the forms required annually for new and returning students, children enrolling at Country Day School for the first time, parents must provide documented proof of identity and age to CDS Office no later than the due date in their agreement. While you wait we look briefly at the document and record the required information as mandated by Virginia Law (Code of Virginia§ 63.2K1809). This requirement can be satisfied by presenting any one of the following:

  • Certified copy of a birth certificate
  • Birth registration card
  • Unexpired passport
  • Copy of placement agreement or entrustment agreement from a child placing agency (foster care and adoption agencies)
  • Child identification card issued by the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles

All documents must be originals.


Our 2019-20 school year is underway, and our classes are fully enrolled. All classes maintain a wait pool should spaces arise; please contact Lynn Hall via email or at 703-356-4282 to check availability or add your child to the wait pool for the current 2018-19 school year.
