Welcome! We sincerely appreciate your interest in The Greenwich Country Day School.
It is with great excitement that we announce that The Greenwich Country Day School and The Stanwich School have entered into an agreement in which GCDS will consolidate and assume all operations of The Stanwich School to open The Greenwich Country Day High School-Stanwich Campus (grades 9-12) in September 2019. Please read the announcement here.
During the 2018-19 school year, our campus on Old Church Road will remain a Nursery through Grade 9 program.
The Wonder Years
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.
