I spent 12 years at DCD and it is impossible to think of all the ways the school helped me become the person I am today. Country Day taught me more than just what you learn in class. I was constantly learning. In the classroom with teachers who genuinely cared about our well-being and success. On the field with coaches who pushed us to give our best effort. In the hallways with friends who understood just how lucky we were to be there.
Country Day did everything it set out to do for me, and I couldn't be more grateful.The demanding workload helped me understand how to not only balance studies, sports, clubs, and a social life, but thrive while doing so.
I'll always love everything about my school!

I have attended Detroit Country Day since the fifth grade, and wow! What an experience it has been. There have been a lot of ups and downs, but more ups than downs. The teachers provide constant knowledge and support, it's hard to do poorly. I've felt welcome and at home since I enrolled at DCD. I have gained and lost friends along the way, but the social and educational challenges will prepare for college with no troubles at all. I would be fibbing if I said I wouldn't miss DCD after graduation. It's been a life changing experience and I am forever thankful to have attended.
I do not regret going to high school and Detroit Country Day School. At the time, I felt that the curriculum was too rigor when it came to balancing the intensity of the academics along with the intensity of the required sports, but now that I'm in college, Im glad I that was the environment. It taught me to manage my time and it forced me to communicate with my peers and the faculty and learn to ask for help when I needed it. While I wish the classroom setting was more similar to college, the life skills that I got out of Country Day were priceless.
