How to Apply

Schedule a Visit

There is plenty of information on our website, but the best way to learn about JCDSRI is to set up a virtual visit with members of our leadership team.  During this visit you will have the opportunity to learn about and get a feel for our very special learning community.  We will share more about JCDSRI and look forward to learning about your child(ren) and family during our time together.  Please reach out to Shayna Fel, Director of Admissions and Community Engagement, to schedule your visit. 

Visits and community events are scheduled throughout the year, but we highly recommend that you join us in the fall.

Applicant Visit

Typically, we invite every applicant in for a visit to our school so that we can get to know them as learners and individuals. However, during this time of Covid-19 we must make every effort to keep everyone safe and healthy.  Therefore we will be holding virtual visits with each child who applies to JCDSRI. Your child will have the opportunity to spend some time with one of our stellar faculty members. These will be fun, interactive visits that will be scheduled at times that are mutually agreed upon.
