The scenario is familiar. Your parents have suggested you consider transferring to Country Day. "It has a better academic program," they usually say. "The students all go to college and they end up better prepared. People will probably be friendlier, you'll have more experiences and opportunities for leadership in music, in sports, in the arts, blah, blah, blah.."

This is about you. You want to know -- what would the switch to another school really feel like? How easy would it be to adjust to the schoolwork? Will the kids be cool? Will they accept me? How friendly is it? Does it mean I need to give up your old friends?

Every year, over 100 students join Lancaster Country Day School. This page of the website tries to help you know what it is really like. The following links help you know before you arrive, before you even look, what that might be like.



An independent, college-preparatory school founded in 1908, Lancaster Country Day School combines a rigorous curriculum with a supportive and encouraging faculty to ensure that every preschool-12th grade student receives the best education available. In addition to Lancaster, students come from Hershey, York and Reading to become part of our vibrant, high-spirited community.
