REALIZING A SHARED VISIONA letter from ADAM ROHDIE
GCDS HEAD OF SCHOOL
Greenwich Country Day School has thrived for nearly a century by deeply valuing and dynamically integrating enduring traditions and exciting innovations.
Established with a singular vision that is as relevant and necessary today as it was at our beginning, Greenwich Country Day School is focused on discovering and developing what is finest in each student—challenging all in mind, body, and spirit—to foster personal and intellectual growth and the common good.
Our founders would immediately recognize in GCDS today the same family school they launched, where students are known and valued, where character is formed and strengthened, and where learning is both rigorous and joyful.
They would also recognize the prescience and commitment of our community—generosity that keeps Country Day moving forward, especially as we re-imagine high school educational excellence and offer our students new, extraordinary opportunities.
With the addition of Grades 10 through 12, our commitment is still steadfast to ensuring that every student, parent, and alum feels part of a warm, tight-knit community. We are making extraordinary leaps within our curriculum and teaching, yet we remain focused on character as central to what a GCDS education means.
We will hold true to what is best about Greenwich Country Day School, while also continuously trailblazing new paths for independent schools. Our ambitions are big—and we will deliver. GCDS FIRST: The Campaign for Tradition and Innovation is what will transform our goals into reality.
I hope you will join me in putting GCDS FIRST.
Adam C. Rohdie
Head of School, Greenwich Country Day School
