Application Process

Families attending Mercymount Country Day School must re-register before February 1st. The registration fee of $135  guarantees a place at Mercymount Country Day School, provides the Parent Association with monies for its treasury, and is used to purchase books for the next year. This fee is non-refundable.

A student entering PreSchool must be 3 years old before August 31st of that year, and also be toilet trained.

A student entering Pre-Kindergarten must be 4 years of age on or before September 1 of that year.

A student entering Kindergarten must be 5 years of age on or before September 1 of that year.

In-House Screening will be conducted for students entering Pre-K and Kindergarten. Mercymount also requires parents of incoming Kindergarten students to provide, for our records, “Child Outreach” or “Child Find” screening through their local school department.

Students may be screened for entrance in other grades as needed. Proof of academic ability and promotion is required for students entering grades 1-8. Certificates of Birth, Sacraments and a non-refundable fee are requested at the time of registration. Mercymount admits students of any race, creed, gender, nationality or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students in this school.

An Open House and Registration is held each year for prospective students and their families. Students applying for Grades 1 – 8 will spend a day at Mercymount as part of the application process.
