Alexandria Country Day School

Alexandria Country Day School is a unique and vibrant community in which students learn deeply, play exuberantly, and reflect thoughtfully about the world and their places in it.  From the first days of Kindergarten until they leave our campus to take on the adventures of high school, ACDS students know that they are part of a community that is dedicated to their growth, well-being and happiness.

We challenge students intellectually; inspire their confidence, curiosity, and creativity; and prepare them to thrive in a diverse and complex world by ensuring that they are independent learners, effective communicators, community minded citizens, and balanced individuals.


  • We invite you to take a look at ACDS through this virtual tour.
  • If you are interested in connecting to an ACDS parent to ask questions or hear about their experience, visit our parent portal.

The program will include a welcome from our Head of School, presentations from our Head of Lower School and Head of Middle School and a Q&A session with our student panel. Afterwards, we’ll break out into groups with current ACDS parents and division heads to answer any remaining questions you may have. To register for the event email
