The admissions process provides an opportunity for the admissions committee, familes and students to learn more about each other and to discover if DCD is the “right fit”. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 781-329-0850.
DCD utilizes an online application process through the Ravenna System. Once you complete our inquiry form, shortly thereafter, you will receive a username and password to access the online application and monitor your child's application process.
Submit the Application for Admissions online along with the $50 fee by January 15 for a March 10 decision. Applications received after March 1 will be rolling admissions based on the needs of the program.
Submit the AISNE form and Release of Records form to your child’s current school. These forms are available on this page as well as on your child's application portal. (forms must be returned directly to DCD from the current school through the Ravenna portal).
Please note that the online application includes a questionnaire that must be completed by students applying to grades 4 through 8.
If you are planning to apply for financial aid, you must do so by February 1 for a March 10 decision. Go online to www.sss.nais.org to complete the Parent’s Financial Statement (PFS).
Schedule testing for applicants grades 5-8, ISEE (code: 222605) or SSAT (code: 2764) and have results uploaded online or have results sent to DCD.
Student visits take place after January 1st. Please contact the admissions office if you have not scheduled your child's visit.
