The December 1 application deadline for the 2022-2023 school year has passed. Applications submitted at this stage of the year will be reviewed on a case by case basis where we have openings and sliding-scale tuition is available. After receiving your application, we will follow up with you if we are able to bring you through the admissions process. 
Throughout our Lower School, we refer to our classrooms by age ranges rather than grades. 6-7s is therefore equivalent to 1st grade; 7-8s to 2nd grade; 8-9s to 3rd grade; 9-10s to 4th grade.

All necessary links and forms will be accessible in your admissions checklist on your applicant portal.

Steps to Apply

List of 6 items.

  • Submit an Application

    Apply for the 2022-2023 school year here. When you submit your application, you will have access to your admissions checklist. We will reach out if we anticipate having open spaces in your applying grade.
  • Submit the Family Financial Worksheet (FFW)

    MCS does not have a financial aid program, rather, we operate on a sliding scale tuition model. The FFW is what allows MCS to calculate each family’s tuition fee, based on their financial profile. Each family’s tuition fee is detailed on their enrollment contract if and when an admissions acceptance is issued.Families who opt for the maximum tuition fee should indicate that on the FFW as well.
  • Child Assessment (virtual) - November 1 through January 14

    The child assessment is a way for us to engage with your child, get to know them, and assess their skills.  The session will involve some math and reading comprehension exercises via screen share. We will schedule assessments as we receive applications, and will stop scheduling once we have run out of appointments. We encourage families to submit their applications early in the process.
  • Optional Parent Conversation - October through January (via Zoom)

    Once you have submitted your application you can schedule a parent conversation through your admissions portal. This is an opportunity to engage with members of the Manhattan Country School administration and tell us about your family as well as ask questions that are particular to your child.
  • Teacher Confidential Report - due by January 7, 2022

    Please request that your child’s current teacher fill out the Teacher Confidential Report. You can send the request to your child’s teacher via the checklist in your admissions portal. We recommend that you submit the request after November 15 so that your child’s teacher has had an opportunity to get to know them.
  • In-person tours - projected for mid-winter

    Our goal is to offer in-person tours in small groups for families who have applied by December 1.
