Dedham Country Day School

At Dedham Country Day School balance matters—in learning and life. Academic challenge is combined with support, and strong scholastics are paired with outstanding arts and athletics to create a program that is balanced and whole.

DCD places a premium on both academic and emotional intelligence. Children learn who they are as 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 children grow “whole”—and into adults who will thrive with the intellectual and emotional capacity to enjoy meaningful lives.

Visit DCD’s 17-acre campus and you’ll get an immediate sense of how children learn to think creatively and critically. From Pre-Kindergarten to grade 8, you’ll witness students tackling hands-on projects, collaborating, taking risks, solving problems—and, most of all, experiencing joy in learning.
