At Wakefield Country Day School, we seek students and families who embrace our mission with its equal emphasis on character and intellectual development. We are a close-knit community where families are welcomed and involved.

WCDS provides a rich and rigorous classical education. Students who desire and can commit to challenging goals will succeed here.
