Welcome! I am delighted that your search for the “right fit” school for your child and your family has led you to Greenwich Country Day School. This is an exciting time for your family, and the Admissions Office team looks forward to introducing you to what makes GCDS an exceptional educational experience for students in Nursery through Grade 12.
At GCDS, learning is student-centered, relevant and meaningful. Students are able to see why what they are learning matters, to make connections with their own interests and strengths, and to apply what they are learning in and beyond the classroom. In short, learning at Country Day is purposeful and personal. 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.
Our historic campus on Old Church Road, home to our students in Nursery through Grade 8, and our new high school campus on Stanwich Road are intentionally designed to support pedagogy, programming, and the development of each student. Our facilities offer best-in-class classrooms, flexible learning spaces, extensive athletic and performing arts facilities, and state-of-the-art STEAM and Robotics Maker Spaces. Geared towards student-centered learning, our campus facilities are not just buildings, they are teaching tools.
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.
