Welcome from the Director!

  • We are excited you are exploring Foothill Country Day School for your child and family!

    At Foothill, we understand the importance of providing an excellent educational foundation, especially during the early formative years. Our mission to provide a safe, nurturing, and inclusive community while emphasizing academic excellence and character remains at the heart of our programming and curriculum. As you begin to explore our website and learn more about our vibrant community, please fill out an inquiry online so we can connect with you. We look forward to learning more about your family throughout this process.

    While the 2020-2021 school year looks different than previous years, the Foothill community continues to provide our comprehensive program to the students and families we serve. Our incredibly dedicated faculty and staff utilized the summer to improve and build upon their digital teaching skill set. Our focus remains on engaging and challenging our students while helping them grow in their academic, social/emotional, and interpersonal skills.

    The Admission process is being updated to reflect our ever-changing landscape. We will be providing many opportunities to visit us virtually and hear more about our Pre-K program, how we are handling virtual learning, and our future plans to return to in-person learning on campus. There will also be opportunities to hear form our Head of School, Division Directors, teachers, students, and parent community. Starting in early October, you can read about our updated process here

    Investing in a Foothill education is a commitment to your child and their educational opportunities. We welcome you to learn more about Foothill and look forward to connecting with you on your Admission journey this year!

    Best wishes, 


    Colette Sims

    Director of Enrollment
