The modern world demands creative problem-solvers. In
the Country Day High School, we prepare our students for jobs
that don’t even exist yet.
We reach beyond traditional “content” learning
and challenge students to innovate, and explore in
a flexible academic program that merges the arts,
literature, science, and technology. Our graduates leave
with a foundational education that embraces 21st century skills
such as critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and
Led by a world-class teaching faculty, alumni of MIT,
Stanford, Harvard and Georgetown among others, we form a
community unafraid to take risks. We live in the spirit of Samuel
Beckett, who wrote, “Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try
again. Fail again. Fail better.”
By all standards, Country Day students shine brightest among all
students in the Sacramento area. Year after year, our SAT
scores average nearly 100 points higher than any other area
schools. Our five-year AP score report shows that roughly 85% of
our students earn a three or higher on their AP tests.
Yet, we value far more than just these traditional measures of
success. At Country Day it’s cool to be smart, athletic,
artistic, or all of the above. We launch graduates into the
world as young adults poised to be leaders in the community and
citizens of a global world.
We challenge students to innovate and explore in a flexible
academic program that merges the arts, literature, science,
technology, engineering, and math. We also offer more than 20 AP
classes, a 9:1 student-teacher ratio, 1-on-1 college
counseling, civic engagement opportunities and a robust
set of summer internships.
As a result, Country Day students shine brightest among all
students in the Sacramento area, earning the highest average SAT
scores in the region and achieving 100% acceptance rate to
the nation’s top universities and colleges.
