Applying to


After years of working in the UW-Madison admissions office, I joined the MCDS enrollment team because because I’ve been so impressed by the students who have applied from MCDS to UW-Madison. They are not only academically impressive by way of their transcript and IB curriculum, but also great writers and storytellers by way of their essays, which results in the student’s energy and passion leaping off the page.

Our admissions process is designed to help you authentically experience Madison Country Day School so you can truly get to know our school – the people, the programs, the environment, and the culture. The first step to learning more about MCDS is to complete an Inquiry Form. This will add you to our email list, and allow us to personally connect with you and set-up a tour. 

Your tour is customized for you based on what you share with our admissions team and what information you find important for you and your family. A typical tour will last an hour, but the length of your visit experience can depend on your selection from our suite of admissions opportunities.

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any questions. We look forward to getting to know you!
