I found the adjustment to the academic demands of college thoroughly manageable because the class rigor was parallel to that of LCDS classes.
Tufts University Student
The stress placed on the research process at LCDS put me on par with graduates of prestigious boarding schools. In my introductory classes, LCDS' preparation put me at a distinct advantage over those who had less or no experience completing a research paper.
Middlebury College Student
Going to F&M was a smooth transition - a continuation of the intensity and focus of LCDS. I was involved in many areas at LCDS, and had already mastered balancing work with other activities. My freshman peers were less often able to organize work flow and to balance studies, athletics and fun. LCDS prepared me extremely well for the rigors of college. I could produce clear and concise writing more quickly and effectively than many of my classmates. Those advantages continue to this day.
Parent and Franklin & Marshall Graduate
My freshman writing class in college, a class required for all attending students, did not provide me any tool or insight that I had not already learned at Country Day.
Harvard College Graduate
Academically, entering college classes was like starting 13th grade at LCDS.
Randolph-Macon College Student
