The Greenwich Country Day School is a co-educational, independent day school with 893 students enrolled in nursery through ninth grade. It is located on an 88-acre campus in Greenwich, Connecticut. The school is fully accredited by the State of Connecticut through the Connecticut Association of Independent Schools (CAIS).
In 1926, forty-five boys dressed in orange and black sweaters arrived for their first day at The Greenwich Country Day School.
Today, GCDS is the largest independent elementary and middle school in the country and a leader in the field of education. A transition of that magnitude does not happen without bold vision, hard work, and tremendous generosity.
We have inherited excellence, and I believe it is our responsibility to leave GCDS even stronger for the next generation. Read more >
