Throughout its history Country Day has thrived thanks to the dynamic interplay between enduring tradition and exciting innovation. GCDS FIRST: The Campaign for Tradition and Innovation is an opportunity for members of our community to enhance these complementary—not oppositional—forces. It is a way to both strengthen tradition—that which connects every generation of Country Day students, such as excellence, character, and the spirit of family—and to support innovation in the form of curricular initiatives, pedagogical best practices, and modern facilities explicitly designed to meet the unique imperatives of a 21st-century education.

Tradition and innovation. Constancy and change. Together they move us forward, and GCDS FIRST shows the way.
