Gaston Day students are all connected by tradition and a strong sense of pride in their school.
We offer an experience that goes far beyond what an ordinary curriculum can.
Founded in 1967, Gaston Day School is a nonsectarian, college-preparatory school for grades Preschool through 12 with approximately 500 students and 65 full and part-time faculty and staff.
Gaston Day attracts students from a five county area including Gaston, Mecklenburg, Lincoln, Cleveland, and York and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
Academic excellence has become the school’s hallmark: the lower and middle schools score in the top half of the nation’s independent schools on standardized tests; SAT scores on critical reading and math are consistently Gaston County’s highest; and our AP test pass rate is over 80%. Athletics and the fine arts remain integral to the comprehensive education that the school provides.
