WHY CAPITAL DAY SCHOOL?
Top 10 Reasons to Choose Capital Day School
1. Small class size means that Capital Day School has a low student-teacher ratio and personalized educational opportunities. Every student is known.
2. Our students are our focus. We teach to support young people, not test scores.
3. Capital Day School is a close-knit community, but it is more diverse than many church-based schools.

6. CDS allows students with gifts to discover themselves. Talents are nurtured while areas of weakness are strengthened.

The lower school curriculum is enhanced with interdisciplinary units and classes in art, music, technology, Spanish, and physical education, and middle school students choose from a variety of nine-week elective courses.
