It’s a very exciting new chapter at The Country Day School Senior School. Our rejuvenated, state-of-the-art high school is nearing completion and this will enable us to keep our CDS mission moving forward. We cannot wait to show you around!
The Country Day School Senior School first opened its doors in 1986 and graduated its first class of 13 students in 1991. Today’s school is a very different place, housing more than 300 active and focused students who are preparing themselves for challenging post-secondary opportunities where they will follow their passions.
Some of our Grade 9-12 students are “lifers”, having started at CDS in JK, SK or Grade 1. However, many students have joined us along the way and have immersed themselves in the school culture – a culture founded on mutual respect, and highlighted by daily character education with balance of both a formal and informal nature. Chief among the strengths in the Senior School is the relationship between teacher and student.
The School is large enough to support robust programming, but small enough that each of the students are well-known by the faculty members. CDS and its Senior division are committed to meeting the needs of all learners, and with the support offered by dedicated teachers and a Student Services team, our students flourish. Decisions at the School always put the child first, with programming and school policies focused on the best interests of the teenagers in our care.
Senior School students are encouraged to take on leadership roles and have an abundance of opportunities to become involved in community service, the arts, athletics or whatever captures their interests. CDS will provide a myriad of opportunities for everyone to discover and develop their talents.
