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. If your child has a sibling at a school you are applying to then please include the sibling application deadline date as well. Completion of our CDS Release Form will enable us to send the teacher recommendations to the schools you have selected.

Many independent schools in the area use Ravenna Systems to coordinate their application process. 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 e-mail address. Please do not contact teachers directly for a recommendation as administrative organization and support is needed to accommodate all of the requests. Country Day School teachers can also complete a Common Recommendation Form or school specific form for those schools not using Ravenna. These requests can also be made to the above e-mail address.

For more information, please attend the CDS information session on applying to Independent schools.
