We're excited you're about to take the first step in becoming a PCDS student. The journey starts here.
Please read the following instructions carefully before beginning your application. If you have questions, the Admissions Office is here to help at email@example.com.
All Applicants Must Have:
❏ Parent Meeting
At least one parent/guardian of each applicant is expected to complete an individual visit with the Admissions Office. This initial informational visit to campus can happen either before or after you submit an application for your child. For grades 5-12 students are encouraged to join a parent/guardian for this informational visit.
To schedule your campus visit, please contact:
Applicants to grades pre-kindergarten* through grade 4 Kaitlan Cady
Teacher recommendations are required for all PCDS applicants. Please note that teacher recommendations must be completed after the first marking period. The online recommendation request form will be available on December 1.
❏ Completed Admissions Assessment
Information about admissions assessments will be available after September 1. For families applying to PCDS from out of state, PCDS accepts either the SSAT or the ISEE in lieu of our onsite admissions assessment (for grades 6-12 only).
Phoenix Country Day School seeks and accepts students for admission without reference to race, color, religion, age, disability, national and ethnic origin, sexual orientation, or gender. Admissions and financial aid decisions are made independently.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the PCDS campus is closed until school resumes on September 8. During this time, the PCDS admissions team will be working to refine campus visit opportunities and the admissions process in a way that provides a safe and informative experience for everyone.
We ask that you revisit our website after September 1 for updated details about the coming admission season. Because campus is currently closed, the admissions team has recorded virtual admissions tours and information sessions available by request. Please contact us directly if you’d like to request that information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
