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" children—and ultimately adults who will thrive with the intellectual and emotional capacity to contribute to their world and enjoy meaningful lives.

Visit us on our 17-acrea campus just minutes from Route 128 in Dedham. You’ll get an immediate sense of how our students learn to think creatively and critically. From Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 8, you’ll witness them tackling hands-on projects, collaborating, taking risks, solving problems—and, most of all, experiencing joy in learning.
