The Detroit Country Day School community is vibrant, multi-faceted, and welcoming. Students and families from many diverse backgrounds contribute to a rich and exciting culture. Our students develop intelligent, sophisticated worldviews through these unique engagements and connections, in order to cultivate respectful, healthy outlooks that will continue to serve them throughout their lives.
"In my years of teaching at DCDS, I have come to have great confidence in the fact that students are going to experience intellectual growth. But I think the most powerful part of this education is that we are nurturing strong, competent, and compassionate leaders." Teneka Singleton, Assistant Head of School
