Employer Description
Detroit Country Day School was founded in Detroit in 1914 by F. Alden Shaw, who was inspired by the Country Day movement.  Until 1940 DCDS was strictly a boys' school.  girls were first admitted to Grades K-6 in 1940 and then admitted to the Upper School in 1972.  the school has been non-denominational throughout its history.

With time and expansion, the school moved from its initial Palmer Park  campus to its modern setting in the attractive western residential suburbs of Detroit.  The schools' Upper (9-12) and Middle (5-8) School share adjoining campuses in Beverly Hills, where the Operational Offices are also situated.  Located approximately three miles away in Bloomfield Hills, the Maple Road Campus is home for Preschool-Grade 4.

Detroit Country Day School offers a strong and varied program that provides numerous opportunities for students to demonstrate their individual strengths and develop their potential.  At the core of its academic program is the instructional philosophy of EPIIC - Experiential, Participatory, Image-Rich, Interdisciplinary and Connected.  DCDS students achieve state, regional and national recognition for their accomplishments in academics, the arts, and athletics, as well as their participation in Community Service.
