Envisioning our Future

The Country Day School's Long Range Plan for 2016 - 2021

For the past five years, the entire CDS community played an essential role in determining where The Country Day School will focus its efforts moving forward. To all who participated, we thank you.

Through conversations and surveys, substantial input was gathered to ensure that feedback from all of our constituents was included.

The information gleaned from surveys, focus groups and discussions allowed us to prioritize our strategic goals and objectives for 2016 - 2021. Four key priorities emerged from this collaborative effort, and many of the goals within the priorities are already well underway.

Over the next five years, we will continue to share initiatives in support of these same four priorities that will be the basis for your child(ren)'s educational journey at The Country Day School.
Support, Know and Inspire
CDS will provide an approach toward instruction that is rooted in a deep understanding of our students. We will support wellness for all and continue to attract inspirational and caring faculty and staff. 
Balance and Innovate
We will continue to provide a balance of exceptional academics, arts and athletics. CDS will lead in outdoor educational experiences and environmental citizenship across all grades and offer a balanced approach to technology.
Build and Engage Our Community
We will further strengthen and engage our community members and fully engage our alumni connections.
Enhance our Financial Sustainability
We will continue to nurture our philanthropic culture, while ensuring our long-term financial sustainability.

What's Next?

We will continue to elaborate on these four priorities and share frequent progress updates through The Backpack, The Link, our website and social media channels.

Look for these coloured icons around the School and in future updates as we continue to highlight initiatives on an ongoing basis over the next three years.

Land Acknowledgment

CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land.  CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
