We Prepare Students For What's Ahead

Academic excellence and so much more!

At Forsyth Country Day School, we believe that students learn best when they are happy, engaged, and have a sense of belonging. From the joy of playing an instrument to the discovery of hands-on science, our individualized instruction fosters curiosity and creativity—setting the stage for lifelong learning.

Our students had a successful year learning in person here on campus in 2020-2021. They created meaningful interactions with teachers and fellow students, engaged in valuable learning, and developed essential skills for the world ahead. We look forward to more important and meaningful learning in the year ahead. Join us!

We truly have been blown away with everything at FCDS. If I could create a school from scratch, this would be it. Rigorous academics, warm and nurturing environment with wonderful and caring teachers, small classes, great options for after school activities...what's amazing is that I'll pick up my sons at 5:30one from soccer and one from the playperfect for both of them, yet quite different activitiesand both tell me what a great day they had, every day. It has been fantastic in every way. Thank you, for all that you do; we truly appreciate it.” - Adam F., New Middle and Upper School parent
"I wanted to let you know that our son has been so happy since starting back to school. He seems unphased by all of the new precautions in place and is happy to see his teachers and friends. Thank you, and the teachers, for all of your hard work to get things established as the new ‘normal’ in the preschool. I wanted to make you aware of just how pleased we are with all of the precautions FCDS has made." – Eileen R., Preschool parent
