Admissions Policy

Our admission process is holistic, which means we look at each aspect of your child’s application.

DCS welcomes qualified applicants with a variety of talents, interests, and perspectives, regardless of race, religion, gender, creed or nationality. 

We seek students who:

  1. Are respectful to others
  2. Are hardworking and determined individuals
  3. Have a record of good conduct
  4. Are motivated and enthusiastic about learning,
  5. Will contribute to and benefit from the stimulating academic environment DCS offers,
  6. Whose qualities can enrich our DCS community

 

We also seek parents that are committed to DCS vision, mission philosophy and values.

Our Admissions Office accepts applications for admission on a continuous basis throughout the year, however, we suggest applying as soon as possible since we have limited availability.

Admission is granted based on the level of preparedness demonstrated by the student to perform successfully in our program and the availability of vacancies.

Admission’s priority is given to students who are children of DelCampo School faculty and staff, siblings of currently enrolled DCS students, children of DCS alumni, and international students.

Good grades and high-test scores alone do not guarantee admission to DelCampo School. Moral character and behavior is as important as academic achievement.
