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. 
Visit 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. 

Summer 2020 Admissions Update

While our physical campus remains closed due to COVID-19, our virtual school is very much open for learning and connecting. Through our distance learning program, "DCD Staying Connected" students and teachers are engaged daily in both synchronous and asynchronous learning and teaching. And here in admissions, we have reconfigured ourselves to operate virtually and are happy to talk to you about your child and answer any questions you may have about our program and space availability for the 2020-21 academic year.

Before “social distancing” and “stay at home orders” became part of our vocabulary, we would have encouraged you to come for a visit. We know now that even in this temporary virtual world, we can share the special essence of our program and culture through a variety of resources.  Please connect with us by emailing admissions@dcds.net.
