Leah G., Pre-K 4 Parent

Making the decision of where to send our eldest child was one our family did not take lightly. Many schools in Jacksonville provide quality academics. We wanted more. We wanted our daughter to grow up in a community that is loving, nurturing, diverse, and safe. Jacksonville Country Day School has perfected all of the aforementioned. 

The JCDS Portrait of a Graduate

The JCDS Portrait of a Graduate captures the school's core beliefs and how those are reflected in each of our students and graduates. Our Portrait of a Graduate focuses on the qualities that make our students uniquely prepared for middle school and beyond.

It is this portrait that brings our mission to life and affirms the choice that families have made for the past 60 years when sending their children to Jacksonville Country Day School.

A JCDS Graduate:
  • is prepared for academic success
  • approaches challenges with confidence
  • communicates thoughtfully and effectively
  • acts with compassion and respects others
  • leads by example
