Welcome to Lancaster Country Day School. We hope that as you get to know us, you experience the joy of LCDS: the joy of learning, the joy of discovery, the joy of friendship, the joy of community, and the joy of becoming. We have been providing a challenging, supportive — and yes, joyful — college preparatory education here for more than 110 years.
Founded in 1908, LCDS is an independent school that uniquely houses preschool through 12th grade under one roof. This physical proximity, combined with our small class sizes and dedicated staff, results in a community that is deeply connected, with meaningful relationships among its students and strong ties between students and their teachers.
At LCDS, we strive to live our motto everyday. Fax mentis et cordis incendium gloriae:
The spark that kindles the mind and heart illuminates a lifetime.
