Service Through Knowledge and Character
"This place has been everything to me for 14 years. I have put my heart and soul into the institution, and I feel like I've received a thorough and well-rounded education. Everything I am is Country Day, and I could not be more thankful." -- Graduate from the Class of 2017

Congratulations, Class of 2017

This wonderful group of 60 young men and women will continue their education at a variety of institutions of higher learning.  They were admitted by 118 institutions in 31 states and the District of Columbia, including the following notable colleges and universities: Brown, Stanford, the University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown, Washington University, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, UVA, UNC, Davidson, Emory, Swarthmore, Johns Hopkins, Wake Forest, Washington and Lee, NYU, the University of Michigan, the University of California at Berkeley, and of course Georgia Tech and UGA along with many other wonderful colleges and universities both in and outside of our region. 

They were offered scholarships totaling over 4 million dollars, not including HOPE, and were admitted to a variety of honors and other special programs.  Three members of the class of 2017 will participate in collegiate athletics, including two in Division I.
"What I loved most about Country Day was the support that we always got from the faculty… The confidence and ease to initiate contact with some of the most influential professors in the fields was something that Country Day taught me very early on and something that I have used extensively in my time here at Stanford."
Kim Nguyen, Class of 2011

"In my business (as a NASA engineer), we have to launch a rocket within an extremely tight window that's just minutes long because small deviations at that early, fiery moment have an enormous impact on the ultimate destination of the spacecraft. I believe that my time at SCDS, though brief and more than twenty years ago, continues to have a similar impact on my life."
Jeff Norris ‘94

"This school taught me how to think for myself while at the same time considering--and being respectful of--the thoughts of others. SCDS challenged me to think globally, to discern the devil in the details, and to unabashedly ask questions about the things that I didn’t understand.  The myriad of clubs one could join, the access to the arts of many disciplines, the many sports teams – all created an environment that allowed the students intellectual independence, creativity, innovation, a strong sense of self, as well as collegiality."   
Joseph Conyers ‘99

"A Country Day education will give you the tools you need to succeed anywhere in the world."
