Thank you for supporting Wakefield Country Day School this year for Give Local Piedmont and for our 50th Anniversary Campaign - to fund the future of our beloved school for the next 50 years! 

Without the generosity of our donors, we wouldn't be able to provide the excellent education at the incredible value that we do.

That said, we know you are agents of our mission. We serve students day-in and day-out from as young as 3 years old, all the way through high school graduation -- young adults ready to enter the next phase of life with compassion, composure, and the tools necessary to make an impact on the world in a meaningful way.

Through the thoughtfulness of supporters like you, we can give more to our students - thank you for supporting us today!



To develop each student’s character and intellect to the student’s fullest potential, encouraging scholarship, diligence, and self-discipline as well as respect for and service to others within a curriculum that emphasizes learning in the classical tradition.


The motto of WCDS is Virtus et Sapientia (virtue and wisdom).

We pride ourselves on offering an education designed to produce students who possess strong critical thinking and analytical skills; who write well and are well versed in public speaking; who are computer literate and motivated by a high sense of ethical responsibility. WCDS also takes seriously the dictum mens sana in corpore sano (a sound mind in a sound body) and believes that physical fitness is integral to a student’s intellectual life as are visual and performing arts.
