FCDS offers an educational environment that focuses specifically on boys’ learning and creates a uniquely personalized approach to shaping young leaders who are guided by confidence, courage, and compassion.

FCDS is redefining all-boys education for today’s world. Our school experience is grounded in rigorous research about what best supports boys’ learning and development.  Our K-9 program embraces intellectual curiosity, fosters social-emotional growth, and encourages thoughtful inclusion. 

At FCDS, we have almost 90 years of experience in advancing boys' education.  Our faculty is well-versed in the cognitive science of how boys experience the world, absorb information, and perform at their best.  The intrinsic value gained by strong teacher-student relationships bolsters classroom efficacy and allows boys to feel secure in being understood by their teachers. 
At Fairfield Country Day, knowing the science of how boys learn is important to us, but striving to understand each FCDS boy-while fostering their unique potential-is absolutely paramount.
