At Fairfield Country Day School, our goal is the ensure that an FCDS education is the right fit for the student and offers an encouraging environment that will inspire him to be his best self. The admissions process is used to determine the personal and academic strengths of each candidate.
School records, personal recommendations and readiness assessments provide the Admissions Committee with insight into the achievements, learning style and character of each applicant.
While expectations vary from grade to grade, FCDS is committed to its Core Competencies and looks for such desirable traits in each candidate.
Prospective applications are reviewed by the FCDS Admissions Committee and students of any race, color, nationality and ethnic origin are offered all the rights, privileges and programs made available at FCDS.
We encourage families to visit FCDS while school is in session—the boys are the real heart of the school community. Seeing the boys engaged in their daily activities with one another and with their teachers is the best way to gather an initial impression of the school.
