Detroit Country Day School’s Athletics program is an integral part of the school’s total educational experience. Our athletic philosophy emphasizes the development of our student-athletes physically, psychologically, socially and personally, while teaching them to strive for excellence, and to understand that adversity and defeat are merely opportunities for personal growth. A broad range of athletic activities for both male and female students provides each with the opportunity to participate in interscholastic sports.
Vital to the success of the athletic program is our ability to develop healthy lifestyles and encourage the “pursuit of physical well-being.” We strive to teach commitment, self-discipline, self-sacrifice, self-respect, sportsmanship, cooperation, leadership, responsibility, loyalty, and pride in one’s self and school community.
The Detroit Country Day School’s Athletics program is dedicated to the development of the entire student-athlete: mind, body and spirit. Young men and women who experience interscholastic competition command an understanding of life that will help shape their own personal philosophies and enhance their lives in the future.
The Detroit Country Day School mascot is the Yellowjacket.
