The school promotes in students a strong sense of independence and responsibility for themselves and for others.  Capital Day School welcomes students of diverse backgrounds and inspires intellectual curiosity in a positive, nurturing, and safe environment.

Traditional Preschool

Lots of interactive Montessori materials are sent home. Primary students (3-6) video chat 2x per week; Lower Elementary students meet daily.


Lower School

Teachers set their own schedule of daily meetings and help sessions. Some facilitate students working independently together.

Middle School

Each week starts with morning meeting on Monday. Students attend every class on Monday and each class meets for two 35 minute sessions during the week before lunch. Electives meet in the afternoons.

 Come see Capital Day School and discover the best start for your child's education. Call or email to reserve your spot today.

Accelerated Academics, small class sizes and individual attention make Capital Day Middle School the most underutilized treasure in Franklin county.
