There are some children whose ability, passion, and curiosity are simply too big for traditional schools. They need a community of learners like them, plus brilliant, tireless teachers who truly understand them and find joy in teaching them.
These students do their best learning in a place where rigorous academics are just the starting point—where the day is often shaped by the questions they ask, and where a lesson plan is, by design, more roadmap than agenda.
Such students thrive in a place where they will internalize forever the understanding that having your own ideas and using them to solve complex problems is just as important as simply knowing the right answer. A place that gently reminds them every day: You belong. And the world needs your gifts.
For some, Seattle Country Day School is that place.
As one of our students put it: “I feel like a puzzle piece that finally found the right box.”
