Dedham Country Day students are ready to face whatever comes their way, at school and in life. For more than a century, DCD, an independent day school in Dedham, Massachusetts, has been a launchpad for children pre-K to grade 8 — a place to dive in and stretch out.

So when it’s time for them to take that next leap, they know they can.

Step into one of our Primary School classrooms and you will hear the hum of happy students, and feel the energy of eager learners. Using thematic, hands-on activities our Pre-K and Kindergarten students learn best and grow their understanding of the world around them through exploration, connection, and discovery.

Faculty teams in each grade plan and teach the curriculum cooperatively, joining their academic expertise and knowledge of elementary school children’s developmental needs to foster the strengths of each child. Our understanding and respect for children’s diverse learning styles enable us to design an engaging and robust curriculum that flexes to meet our students’ needs.

The middle school years are a journey from childhood to adolescence as students gain more independence, take on a greater sense of responsibility for their own learning, and develop their individual identities. This time of exploration begins in sixth grade with the move from a single homeroom to advisory groups and multiple classes in a growing number of disciplines, including math, science, history, English, and world languages.
