    *When completing the application, please note that the system may recognize your email address. MSD Parents, please use your Blackbaud username and password. Prospective Parents, if the system recognizes you due to your inquiry, your email address will be highlighted in red after you click "submit." If this occurs, select the "Forgot Login?" button. You will receive a username and password via email to be able to access the online application.

    Request Student Records and Transcripts. Paperwork must be received by January 30. If your child is currently attending another school, please request that his or her transcripts and a teacher recommendation be sent from your child’s current school to MSD. Applicants to our Kindergarten through Middle School are required to have this information into MSD in order for the application to be complete.

    If you are applying for Kindergarten through grade five, please submit the Confidential Teacher Recommendation Form and the Transcript Release Form to your child's current school.

    If you are applying for grades six through eight, confidential recommendation forms must be submitted by the student’s current English and Math instructors, an additional teacher, and by an advisor or principal. A Transcript Release Form is also required. Download each form here:

    3. Student Visit. Admission visits are required and should be completed by early February. Once your application is complete, a member of the admission team will be in touch to schedule a student visit for all students age three and over. Toddler applicants are not required to visit. Student visits vary in length according to the program to which your child is applying. 

    4. Parent Chat. Admission parent chats must be completed by February 15. Once your application is complete, a member of the admission team will be in touch to schedule a parent chat. Kindergarten through Middle School parent chats are scheduled after your child's visit. When you enroll your child at MSD, your family joins an amazing community of parents committed to a successful partnership between school and home. We value that relationship and therefore recognize the importance of getting to know you as well as your child during the admissions process. To that end, we require that parents attend a 30-minute conversation with a member of the admissions staff so that we can learn more about you. During this meeting, we are also available to answer questions regarding our educational philosophy, program hallmarks, and logistics, or any other questions you may have about your child’s application to MSD.

    Notification. Toddler (age 2) notification is Tuesday, March 12. Lower School (Primary through Fifth Grade) notification is Tuesday, March 5. Middle School notification is Wednesday, February 27.

    After the first round of notifications, we will continue rolling admission until all spaces are filled. We will work with families to complete the admission process as quickly as possible.
