Open House Information

Our Open Houses begin at 12:45 p.m. and are warm, welcoming and informative.  Programs last approximately 2½ hours and are not designed as drop-ins.

After check-in there  is a group session, followed by Q&A round-tables by division (Lower, Middle, and Upper School) where parents and students can ask more specific questions; followed lastly with a tour of the school led by an Upper School student. There are opportunities along the way to have informal talks with members of our community and to have your questions answered.

Admission Open House Registration

Students entering Grade 5 and above are invited to attend the event.
LCDS provides complimentary childcare during the Open House event for children entering Preschool through Grade 4.
The format of the program is geared towards parents and children in grades 5th and up, although occasionally somewhat younger children are able to sit quietly through, and possibly be interested in, some rather lengthy presentations and discussions. 
Please arrive in time to allow for parking, sign-in and light refreshments. Parking is in our main lot off of Hamilton Road, not our Lower School lot off of Hillcrest Road.
We do offer on-site babysitting but you know your child and your situation best.  Because the ages, number of children, and range of behaviors in an Open House babysitting group can be unpredictable some families prefer to leave younger children at home with a familiar sitter. 
A very high percentage of our new families who attended an open house have told us that it was this event that absolutely convinced them that LCDS offers what they were looking for in a school setting.

An independent, college-preparatory school founded in 1908, Lancaster Country Day School combines a rigorous curriculum with a supportive and encouraging faculty to ensure that every preschool-12th grade student receives the best education available. In addition to Lancaster, students come from Hershey, York and Reading to become part of our vibrant, high-spirited community.
