General School Mission

"Deeply committed to the intellectual, creative and emotional growth of its students, Lancaster Country Day School seeks to provide a rigorous, college preparatory academic program within a supportive environment, creating a community of outward-looking, lifelong learners. Challenging students to look at the world in new ways, LCDS has high academic and behavioral expectations of its students while providing extensive support to achieve those standards. Through especially close relationships between students and adults, the School encourages personal growth and trust, fostering confident, articulate, and thoughtful individuals who can deal with the complexities of the world and the rapid rate of technological and societal change.

As a preschool-12 school under one roof, LCDS encourages a close interaction between different age groups and between people of diverse backgrounds, striving to reflect the world, as it truly exists. Respect for self and for others and a commitment to one's contribution to society, are hallmarks of a Lancaster Country Day School education. In addition to setting high expectations, the School urges both students and adults to find a proper balance, fulfilling their many obligations while maintaining a strong commitment to their own physical and emotional health.
