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.

Country Day offers a wide variety of technology-related courses in all three divisions of our school. Lower School students may select after-school enrichment classes in coding, programming, and robotics. Middle School students are offered elective classes in coding, programming, robotics, maker lab, game design, and video making as well as an after-school robotics club. Our High School curriculum includes three AP Computer science courses, four AP mathematics courses, and four AP science courses.
