Capital Day School is dedicated to empowering students in early childhood classes through the eighth grade for success through an enriched curriculum that inspires academic excellence and individual growth. 


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.

Just because our halls are quiet does not mean our students' minds are: the Learning Continues at CDS during Healthy at Home.

Check out how our Remote Instruction Program is happening in our different divisions

Traditional Preschool

The Preschool daily remote curriculum includes Math, Science, Social Studies, fine motor & art/gross motor/social & emotional work. We cover at least three subjects daily.



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.
