Chico Country Day School


The interest form for the 2019-2020 school year will be available January 1, 2019!

CCDS conducts our admissions process through School Mint. School Mint is accessible here or via the School Mint app available at the Apple Store / iOS or Google Play / Android.

The Admissions Process

CCDS endeavors to accommodate all students who apply for admission; however, because applications for admission exceed the number of spaces available, CCDS uses a computerized random selection process to determine admission status and the waiting list. Spaces are allocated to form a student body that reflects the demographics of the region in which the school is located.

Interested applicants must do the following to apply:

Complete an Interest Form for admission between January 1st and the last Friday in February 2019  in order to be entered into the random selection process for admission to CCDS.  Once you apply, you will be directed to a confirmation page where you will see a record of what was submitted, please print that page for your records. You will also receive an email confirmation. Please save this confirmation. If you need assistance with filling out the School Mint interest form, please visit the main office.
