About the Parents' Association

The Jacksonville Country Day School Parents' Association fosters close bonds among parents, guardians, faculty, staff, and administration, and also provides support and resources for various community events and fundraising efforts. We achieve these goals by promoting greater family and parent involvement in the various aspects of JCDS life and our children's education.

All parents or guardians of students are automatically members of the Parents' Association and are encouraged to become involved by volunteering for various Parents' Association supported activities.
