Meet our Students
Throughout Detroit Country Day School, students learn in an atmosphere that promotes self-confidence and self-esteem, allowing them to become independent learners and thinkers, well prepared for secondary school. Our goal is to develop and nurture the entire child. This involves activities that stretch well beyond the classroom. Every environment—from the playing field to the library—helps to enrich each student's life. Their educational experiences, whether in the classroom, out on the playing fields, or on the stage, should always push them to their full potential.
All of our students participate in a variety of visual and performing arts and athletic programs, and take part in a number of different community service projects. We even offer a variety of extracurricular activities, ranging from additional music lessons and enrichment activities to forensics and French.
