Welcome to Lancaster Country Day School

Welcome to LCDS. We hope 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-12th grade under one roof. This proximity combines with our small class sizes and dedicated staff to create a community that is deeply connected, with meaningful relationships among students and strong ties between students and their teachers.
At LCDS, we strive to live our motto every day: Fax mentis et cordis incendium gloriae: The spark that kindles the mind and heart illuminates a lifetime.
