About Kalamazoo Country Day School 

Kalamazoo Country Day School was founded 43 years ago to celebrate and inspire learning during the first chapter in a student’s school career. As an accredited, independent school, the school operates at the forefront of educational thought, makes decisions that are the best for each student, and looks to a rich history to help inform those decisions.

At Kalamazoo Country Day School, our motto is “Explore, Expand, Excel.” We believe that children excel in an academically challenging, yet child-centered, environment. Our project-based, integrated, and thematic curriculum promotes critical thinking, problem solving, and risk taking. Our dynamic faculty is sensitive to individual learning styles in order to help students explore their full potential.

We are committed to character development through experiences that foster our four core values: respect, responsibility, integrity, and caring. Opportunities for community service expand social awareness. Our curriculum and special events instill an awareness and appreciation for world cultures.
