Admissions Procedure

You must submit an application package that includes: student essays, most recent student report card, and a teacher recommendation. If your application is incomplete, you will not be considered. It is your responsibility to make sure that the report card and teacher or principal recommendation are delivered on time.

Students will be evaluated based on their application essay, parent-principal interview, teacher recommendation and performance during Admissions Day. A writing sample, reading assessment and math assessment will take place on the Admissions Day.  We are looking to build a cohesive and diverse class of students who are a good match for our school’s mission.

Parents must schedule and come in for a parent-principal interview between the beginning of February and Mid-April. Please call the school to schedule a time. Failure to attend the parent interview will mean your application cannot be considered.

All newly accepted students are required to attend a 7 day summer orientation program during the last two weeks in August. Please do not make any holiday arrangements during this time, as your child must participate in this orientation.

Tuition and Financial Aid

DCMS is committed to finding a way for all students to attend our school. All students receive scholarships from our generous donors and we ask families to support DCMS tuition according to their ability to pay.
