Thank you for your interest in Rockland Country Day School (RCDS). Since its founding in 1959, the school focuses on an individualized approach to education for each of its students. The school’s college preparatory program emphasizes critical thinking and creative expression and its exceptional college preparatory program has enabled students to be successful both academically and socially. We have many students who are gifted and variously talented and we are able to provide flexible scheduling and accelerated grade and subject area placements to meet their needs.
The school is located on a sprawling 20 acre campus of open and wooded land. It houses the Children’s School, Middle School, Upper School, STEAM Lab, Gymnasium and Art Studio. We also have athletic fields, and an outdoor amphitheater. In addition, there is an organic garden that is used in science classes and the vegetables harvested are used in our school’s healthy lunch program.
Inherent in Rockland Country Day’s mission is our dedication to creating an inclusive community that mirrors the socioeconomic diversity of our communities. Our Financial Aid Program is one of the most far-reaching of any independent school, providing some level of aid to over one-half of the student body. Financial aid affirms our commitment to helping make an RCDS education available regardless of a student’s economic means by bridging the gap between what a family can pay and the cost of tuition.
The best way to learn more about RCDS is to visit the school. Please call the Admissions Office to schedule your tour or email for more information. In the meantime, visit our Facebook page to see the many ways we develop the creative mind and a love of learning.
