Rockland Country Day School brings forth the best in every student by knowing and educating each of them as an individual. The pillars of our college preparatory program are critical thinking, creative expression, and the cherishing of diversity.
The principal aim of Rockland Country Day School is to provide an academic curriculum and intellectual environment suitable for young people preparing for advanced education in the arts and sciences.
Two conditions are necessary for the success of this aim. These are, first, a well-trained and humanistically-oriented faculty and, second, an atmosphere that encourages intellectual and artistic interests and initiative. These conditions go hand in hand. They are never to be taken for granted, and they must be continuously reinforced by cooperative discussion among faculty, students, administration, parents, and trustees. From the beginning, it has been our purpose to build a school that would have sufficient depth and life to make this constant re-examination inseparable from its very character.
