The Country Day Advantage

Overview

The Country Day Advantage
Discover a Place Where All Students Love to Learn

At Country Day we engage a diverse community to think critically, live creatively, and act compassionately, each and every day. We encourage our students to develop the full range of their capabilities – intellectual, physical, creative, social, and moral – and we cultivate the habits and skills that will enable them to lead fulfilling lives.

A hallmark of Country Day is the close mentoring relationship that develops between students and teachers, and with a student-teacher ratio of 8:1, every child has a “front-row" seat. All of our graduates are accepted to four-year colleges and universities and many attend some of the most selective in the nation. In addition, our warm, nurturing environment promotes deep and lasting friendships among our students, faculty, alumni, and their families.

"Front-Row” Seats

At Country Day, individual students are recognized and every student has day-to-day engagements with their teachers. Hallmarks of our school are the close mentoring relationships and strong rapport that develop between students and their teachers. With an average faculty-to-student ratio of one teacher for every nine students and small class sizes in every grade, a core part of our mission is to ensure that every student has a front-row seat.

Choices, Choices, and More Choices

Students have full access to every program we offer.  As students experience drama, sports, our award-winning newspaper, Mock Trial, Student Council, or instrumental music, they discover unknown talents and interests and learn to try new things.  Students can be selective, make choices, or do it all at Sacramento Country Day.

Independent Thinking

We encourage children in the open pursuit of knowledge.  From literature-based writing and a focus on critical thinking and problem-solving in math in the Lower School to Advanced Placement and honors instruction in the High School, SCDS challenges its students to grow intellectually. Indeed, we pride ourselves on helping each child find his or her own “voice.”

Dedicated, Talented Faculty

Country Day attracts outstanding teachers who recognize the value of bright, enthusiastic students, small class sizes, the supportive community of colleagues and parents, and the unique opportunity to design a curriculum and create a classroom environment that inspires each student. Our faculty members are scholars as well as talented teachers, and they are given the autonomy to develop the best course of study and inquiry in the classes they teach at Country Day.
