Parents' Association

President's Message

To sustain a school like Jacksonville Country Day School requires more than just a great faculty, staff, and curriculum. It also takes involvement from the broader JCDS community - from all of those who deeply care about our students and understand the importance of carrying out our mission to celebrate the love of learning and the joy of the journey.

To achieve our mission and provide students with the full JCDS experience, we rely on the active participation and support of our entire community - parents, grandparents, and more!

There are several meaningful ways to support our school and become involved!

-Lauren Rickoff, PA President

Parent Ambassadors

The Parent Ambassador committee at Jacksonville Country Day School extends a warm welcome to you and your family. We are very excited that you have chosen to learn more about the exceptional learning environment here at JCDS.

Parent Ambassadors are a group of dedicated parents who are interested in helping all parents at JCDS feel welcomed and supported. Our committee members not only serve new parents as liaisons to inform and assist families as they transition into our school, but we also work with existing families to ensure a continued strong connection to the JCDS community.
