Mission Statement

The mission of The Greenwich Country Day School is to enable all children in our care to discover and to develop what is finest in themselves—to achieve the highest standards in their studies, in their play, and in their character.

We are committed to the ideal of a coeducational family school. We recognize that every child is an individual who possesses unique talents and abilities. We promote consideration of others, value diversity, and teach respect for all people and our world.

The Greenwich Country Day School maintains high academic standards, a broad and balanced curriculum, and time-honored traditions. We encourage children to take intellectual risks. The school prepares students for rigorous secondary school studies and endeavors to foster a love of learning that endures.

We believe the quality of our faculty and staff is essential to the achievement of our mission.

The Greenwich Country Day School challenges students in mind, body, and spirit—for their personal growth and for the common good.

The students, faculty, administration, Board, and parents have embraced every word of the GCDS mission statement." - Accreditation Review
