Head of School Welcome

Greetings from Foothill Country Day School!  For over 60 years, we have served families looking for a K-8 education that will provide the foundation for solid character, a lifetime of learning, and successful engagement in society.  We believe in the pursuit of academic excellence; that a rich program in the arts is necessary to reach the whole child; and above all, that strength of character distinguishes a child more significantly than academic achievement.

The academic and moral foundation we provide enables our graduates to be successful students and persons of integrity in high school and, from there, in some of the most competitive colleges and universities in the region and across the country.  Sending your child to Foothill Country Day School is the best investment you can make in his or her future.

We hold high standards for ourselves and for the children entrusted to our care.  At Foothill, your child will be known, and we will partner with you to ensure your child can take advantage of all the learning and growth opportunities presented by our challenging and engaging program. Our purpose is clear—to develop in our students the skills and habits of mind that lead to academic excellence and lives defined by such traits as good citizenship, thoughtfulness, and integrity.

Please take a closer look by arranging for a visit to campus.  You will find beautiful grounds and impressive facilities, a welcoming group of parents, engaged students who look you in the eye when they greet you, and a diverse faculty who love their work and seek to know each child as an individual. Together, we embrace the call to prepare students with a foundation they will use for the rest of their lives.

I look forward to meeting you in person.
