Welcome! We sincerely appreciate your interest in The Greenwich Country Day School.
The Wonder Years
GCDS is the largest independent elementary and middle school in the country, and all of our expertise and resources are focused on the critical years of a child's early education.
From your child's first day at GCDS, he or she gets the best of what we have to offer. From our science labs to the professional experience of our teachers to our playing fields, we believe in focusing on "the wonder years." Every day our students are given opportunities to expand their minds, open their hearts, work collaboratively, and form habits that lead to personal fulfillment and contribution.
Family and Community
The deep commitment of our teachers and the joyful environment on campus create a strong sense of community. Many parents remark that GCDS feels like an extension of their home—especially because of the emphasis on character throughout all aspects of the school day. Children are known at Country Day, and the connection between faculty and students lasts long after our graduates leave our campus.
We are a family school not only because we believe in educating siblings together in a co-educational environment, but also because GCDS parents are closely involved in the life of the school. Together, we are partners in preparing our students to be confident, caring, and successful citizens.
Our website is a wonderful first look at the school; however, for you to really get to know us, we encourage you to take the next steps—tour our campus, speak with an Admissions Director, and attend the Open House. We warmly invite you to see first-hand the benefits of the Country Day experience.
