Innovation and Technology

Sacramento Country Day School is committed to the ongoing development of an engaging, interdisciplinary learning environment that innovates and creates, while also embracing the use of technology to support the growth of each student and the overall educational goals of Country Day.

Central to our philosophy is that we use technology when it is the right tool for the job and not just technology for the sake of technology. Our goal is to prepare our students to become key contributors to the world of the 21st century.

High School students are issued MacBook laptops for grades 9 - 12.  Middle School students use individual school-owned Chromebooks and iPads for grades 6 - 8. Lower School students make use of mobile iPad and laptop carts. 

Every corner of the campus, including all 53 classrooms, are connected to the Internet via a high-speed wireless network. Both libraries offer a wide array of online resources for student course work and research, and our state-of-the art Maker Space houses two 3-D printers. In 2017 the school opened a brand new recording studio.

Students collaborate online through using Gmail, Google Docs, and Google Sites. Students and parents access assignments through Country Day's Learning Management System CavNET.

Middle and High School curriculums includes such core and elective classes as Robotics, App Creation, AP Principles of Computer Science, Digital Photography, and Film Editing.
