DCD Admissions Events 2021-22

Welcome to DCD! We are so happy you are interested in learning more about our school.

With safety guidelines in place, we are excited to welcome back visitors to our campus this year. Prospective parents can join us for a Classroom Observation, schedule a personal tour with a member of our admissions team, connect with our head of school for Coffee and Conversation, or hop on a Zoom call for an evening Virtual Learning Spotlight with our division heads and teachers.

Please see the schedule below. Of course, given the unpredictability of the virus, we will remain vigilant and may need to pivot to maintain the health and safety of our community and prospective families. We encourage you to check back for any updates or changes in our event schedule.

Safety Guidelines

DCD does have a universal indoor masking policy and asks that all visitors are vaccinated and remain masked when inside the building. In addition to your mask, please bring your vaccination card to campus for when you check-in for your tour or admissions event.  If you are not able to join us in person, we will be offering live virtual tours and virtual events. Please reach out to our admissions team to schedule your tour.

Families are invited to a panel discussion to hear firsthand from parents, alumni, and current students of independent schools.
