Our Parents

"By working toward a common goal, parent volunteers often form lasting friendships and make a significant difference to our school and its students." - Anne Weiner, parent of three alumni, former Parents' Association president and current Board of Trustee.

Parents' Associations

The core of volunteers for the associations work together with the individual campuses and the Detroit Country Day community as a whole, to supplement the curriculum between parents, children and administration, and foster a spirit of understanding and support.  All associations are led by an executive board and parent chairs who organize and lead the association's efforts.

Numerous volunteer opportunities exist for current parents, past parents, alumni and friends of the school.

Our Alumni

For over 100 years, the Detroit Country Day School has transformed students into leaders of character who go on to great accomplishments. Our alumni, more than 6,000 strong, live across the country and around the world and are leaders in the fields of industry, medicine, government, and non-profits for humanitarian causes. They carry the lessons they learn at Detroit Country Day School into adulthood and often look back on their years here as among the most rewarding of their lives.

Our alumni stay connected and get involved through our Alumni Association and various student events. As graduates, our alumni are not only a proud example of our successful legacy, but also a role model for future generations of graduates.
