Here at Detroit Country Day School, we honor the dignity of every human being and value the differences that exist and are expressed throughout our vibrant school. Members of our community are treated fairly and provided access to genuine opportunities to thrive. Our commitment is to nurture an inclusive environment where all students can participate fully and have a sense of belonging.

We seek kind, empathetic, and responsible students who are engaged and curious learners. Students should be willing to explore athletic and artistic challenges and be eager to become actively involved in our community. In return, our community will provide extensive academic preparation, athletic and artistic opportunities and nurture honorable, inquisitive, innovative, inclusive, balanced, and resilient individuals (Portrait of a Detroit Country Day Student)."
