Welcome to the Rockland Country Day School (RCDS) website.
At the core of our school are talented and dedicated educators who partner with families to ensure the educational and personal growth of each and every child in a school culture that is unique in its ability to embrace and celebrate the individual. We are a small but accomplished school. Our focus on every student and our belief in differentiated instruction allows us to serve our students well. We also have a long history of educating gifted students. We have had students who completed high school math in middle school and went on to study MIT open source course-ware, offered in our upper school; students who built working radios, cars, and boats as their independent study projects; students who were recognized as National Merit Scholars; students who have received Metro Awards in theater; and students whose work in science led to Tri-county science awards.
We are guided by the vision of our founders. We work daily to be an institution of classical education that is forward-looking and innovative, yet grounded in the independent school tradition of challenging intellectual work, individualized attention, and character development. Please visit our Facebook page to see daily life on our vibrant campus. We continue on our journey, firm in the belief that “from strong roots we flourish.”
I encourage you to visit our campus. Just forty minutes from New York City, you will find a school full of life, with teachers and students working together with the kind of attention and focus that makes RCDS so special.
