A Pre-Kindergarten - Grade 12 co-educational independent day school in Westchester, New York

Welcome to Admissions

We're glad you're here.

At Rye Country Day, we are committed to helping families find the right school. We feel strongly that the admissions process should be personal and reciprocal. Although this year we will not be able to get together in person, we would like to get to know you, and we would like for you to get to know us. We invite you to learn, explore, and discover what a Rye Country Day education might mean for you.

If you have any questions or would like to speak with someone about what Rye Country Day might mean for your family, please reach out to us at 914-925-4513 or admissions@ryecountryday.org.

Please note, we are no longer accepting applications to the Lower School for the 2021-22 school year. If you are interested in applying for a second round application in Middle or Upper School please follow the instructions below.
