Request Info

Thank you for your interest in Carrollwood Day School.

As you explore the many opportunities Carrollwood Day School offers students and families, please know that the admission office is here to help in any way we can. Our school meets the needs of many, but not all children. We believe that it is just as important for families to thoughtfully choose the right school for their children as it is for us to carefully select each new member of our student body. We strive to make our admission process extremely personal and individualized to help you determine if CDS is the “right fit” for your child and family. 

Visiting our website is a great first step in the admission process. But the best way to learn about Carrollwood Day School is by visiting our campuses. Community Open Houses are held at our Bearss Avenue Campus in October and November and at our Early Childhood Campus (ECC) in November. Families are also welcome to schedule a personal tour at either our ECC or Bearss Avenue Campus throughout the year.

We hope you will take advantage of one of these opportunities to visit. There’s nothing like seeing our children and teachers in action to give you an immediate sense of what makes CDS great.

We look forward to meeting you and your family.

Director of Admissions
