☐ Student Assessment
Applicants to kindergarten are required to take the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence (WPPSI IV), the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC IV or WISC V) or the Differential Abilities Scales (DAS II). These are cognitive assessments conducted by an independent, licensed psychologist. You may choose your own qualified test administrator or refer to the list of professionals (see Forms section), who operate independently from the school and have agreed to participate in admission testing for Graland Country Day School.

☐ Send Student Records and Teacher Recommendations
If your child is currently or has been enrolled in a school or daycare program within the past six months, a confidential teacher recommendation is required from his or her teacher. (Note: Please find the form on this page, on the left side under Forms.)

☐ Student Visit and Parent Interview
We ask all applicants and their parents to participate in a campus visit. Applicants to kindergarten participate in an activity-filled, one-hour classroom visit.

Parents will meet with an admission professional to learn more about Graland. This is also a time for us to learn about your child’s individual characteristics and your aspirations for his or her education.

Student visits begin in January 2019 and can be scheduled after you’ve submitted the student’s online application. Click to contact the Admission Office.
