Sacramento Country Day School


Lee Thomsen
Head of School

Sacramento Country Day is a very special place.

As an independent school in Sacramento we combine the qualities of community – knowing, loving, and appreciating each and every student for his or her unique gifts - while also providing the finest educational experience in the Sacramento region. 

Country Day students achieve the highest test scores, receive numerous awards, and 100% of our graduates matriculate to top colleges and universities across the state and nation. However, it is not just these accomplishments that define what it means to be a Country Day student; being a student at Country Day means being part of a diverse, inclusive and supportive community.

Whether in our Lower School, Middle School and High School, one of the hallmarks of the Country Day advantage is that our students know they can count on a community where all members feel appreciated, respected, and safe. And, because our students learn how to contribute meaningfully to the lives of others, the impacts of a Country Day education extend California and beyond.

Our spectacular faculty and staff nurture, believe in, and challenge your children to reach beyond what they know they can do to achieve what they don’t yet know they can do – “the impossible.”

And that is the essence of Sacramento Country Day.
