About Admissions

During the admissions process, we invite you to learn, explore, and discover what a Rye Country Day education might mean for you.

At Rye Country Day, we are committed to helping families find the right school. We feel strongly that the admissions process should be a personal and reciprocal relationship. We would like to get to know you, and we would like for you get to know us.

We invite you to visit our campus so that we can spend some time together and so you can see for yourself what the Rye Country Day experience is all about.
