Head of School's Welcome,

I am glad you have chosen to learn more about Capital Day School. Ours is an inclusive community committed to academic excellence and student-centered learning. We have an enriched academic curriculum with a commitment to arts and technology education. At CDS, all our strengths are mobilized to deliver an engaging, first-rate academic experience in a supportive environment. It’s a warm place, full of kids who love to learn and who get many opportunities to demonstrate mastery of their skills.


The educators at Capital Day equip their students with the academic skills to thrive in any setting they encounter. Our low student-teacher ratio allows our teachers to deliver curriculum in creative and responsive ways, with more time devoted to skill development and individual attention than standardized test prep and crowd control.

It’s the type of education that builds independent learners with a sense of accountability to their community; it’s the type of education every child deserves.


As you take the time to learn about our school from the website, I hope you will want to come see us in person. Viewing the learning process at work in our classrooms will be inspiring, and I am always eager to share what a child can get from a Capital Day School education.


I look forward to seeing you on campus,


Beth Mcdonald
Head of School
