Education with Balance. What does this mean to a family who is considering The Country Day School for the first time?

It means that we don’t operate from a “one size fits all” approach. Instead, CDS offers individualized instruction and is sensitive to the needs of each student. This approach is intrinsic in everything we do. We cultivate the passion a child brings with them, or help them to discover one here.

Parents who are already part of the CDS community tell us repeatedly how much this phrase resonates with them. From day one, CDS students are encouraged to discover or nurture their passion, whether that be for an academic subject, the visual arts, music or drama, athletics or outdoor education. Our dedicated faculty challenge them to try new things every day.

CDS hosts Open Houses throughout the academic year as an opportunity for you and your family to visit and tour our school with a teacher or student. Please don’t feel held to these dates; you may call or e-mail for a personal tour anytime. You may also complete our inquire now form, visit our how to apply page, or read our online prospectus to learn more.

Whichever approach you prefer, we would welcome an opportunity to show you around! Thank you for including CDS in your independent and private school search.

Schedule a Personal Tour

Personal tours are not taking place during COVID-19, however we hope they will start up again in the fall. Families are always welcome to arrange a personal tour of the School. Please contact the Office of Admissions to schedule a convenient time for your family.
