Student2Student Program

Rockland Country Day School’s STUDENT 2 STUDENT program provides the opportunity for students to make life-long connections by pairing returning students with incoming students.
For new students, STUDENT 2 STUDENT provides an immediate connection: a guide to show them around campus, give tips on how to integrate quickly into the RCDS community, and answer questions about anything from after-school activities to which class requires the most writing. For returning RCDS students, this is a chance to make friends with someone either from a different culture or right around the block, and learn about their favorite foods, music, sports, and family life.
STUDENT 2 STUDENT pairs will have lunch together on campus at least twice each month and participate in fun team building exercises throughout the school year. For those of you who are interested in participating in the Host Family Program, this is a great way for your son or daughter to get to know a boarding student who would also love to feel at home with your family.
