Balanced. Connected. Whole.

At DCD, we believe that balance matters in learning and life. We combine academic challenge with support; pedagogical tradition with innovation. Strong scholastics combined with outstanding arts and athletics create a program that is balanced and whole. Here, a premium is placed on both academic and emotional intelligence.  

Children learn who they are as diverse individuals and how to be part of something bigger. Acceptance is a given, and children find encouragement in every connection they make. It’s a community that nurtures, nudges, and gives. That's how we grow "whole" childrenand ultimately adults who will thrive with the intellectual and emotional capacity to contribute to their world and enjoy meaningful lives. 
Connect with us, and you’ll get a sense of how our students learn to think creatively and critically. You’ll see kids being kids—and being themselves. You’ll witness them tackling hands-on projects, collaborating, taking risks, solving problems—and, most of all, enjoying their experience.  

Get to Know DCD

In September, we welcomed 308 eager children back to campus for in-person learning.  While our campus and classrooms look a bit different this year, DCD’s 117th school year is off to a wonderful start.  Taking advantage of every inch of our 17-acre campus and the creativity and ingenuity of our faculty and staff, DCD students are diving into an extraordinary year of learning!

We hope you will take an opportunity to get to know us through the many virtual events and personal connections we have lined up for our admissions season.  Please follow the link below to see a full description of the many ways you can learn about DCD.

DCD Joins the Lower School Diversity Consortium

We are excited to share that during the summer, DCD joined the Lower School Diversity Consortium (LSDC), which is a group of schools in Greater Boston whose mission is to address systemic racism by increasing and strengthening the population of Black and Brown families in our schools. The goals of the LSDC are to discuss the unique opportunities independent schools can provide for students, to explore why these schools are worth the investment, and to explain how a family would go about exploring schools to find the best match. This consortium is not about promoting individual schools but about sharing the value proposition of independent schools in general to two historically underrepresented groups in independent schools - African American and Latinx/Hispanic families - and about recognizing how these underrepresented groups equally benefit our independent school communities.

Join us virtually for the Consortium's first fall event which includes an informative panel discussion. 

Please click here to register for this event on November 12 | 7:00-8:30 p.m.
