Fort Worth Country Day takes a whole-child approach to education, helping students develop physically, emotionally, ethically, socially and intellectually. Our academic support programs, health and wellness counselors, teacher-led advisories, student-led initiatives, integrated core values, service learning, unique traditions, and commitment to the 3A’s (Academics, Arts, Athletics) help ensure that every student has the chance to succeed while developing character and maturity.
We take our Core Values seriously, integrating them into the curriculum, programs and activities at every grade level. Integrity. Kindness. Courage. Respect. Responsibility. Scholarship. Every Falcon knows these words and learns how to live them every day.
From the moment you walk on campus, we want you to experience that special feeling of belonging. That’s why we cultivate an intentionally inclusive community with events and programs focused on creating connection. You know you’re a part of something special here at Fort Worth Country Day. You know you are supported and appreciated. You know you are home.
FWCD graduates have a 100 percent acceptance rate for four-year colleges and universities across the U.S. and internationally. Academic and personal development of each student is the foundational reason for such success. But at FWCD, we go even further to ensure that every family understands the college admission process, and every student is prepared to excel in the next stage of their education. The quality and the quantity of our College Counseling program is unmatched as dedicated College Counselors connect students and their families to the resources and information they need to make the best decisions regarding their academic future.
At FWCD, cross-curricular, interdisciplinary and culturally enriching opportunities abound, interlacing disparate subjects into a fabric of meaning for students. The Awesomeness Initiative hones in on topics that students find fascinating through ungraded elective courses taught by teachers who share their passion. Through the Capstone program, Seniors explore, research, create and present an interdisciplinary, summary project on a topic they find meaningful under the guidance of an advisor. The School cultivates global competence in all JK-12 students by weaving global perspectives into the curriculum, working with local partners to contribute to our Fort Worth community, and providing meaningful international travel and hosting exchanges through the Center for International Studies.The 4-H program provides opportunities for students and their families to gain the skills needed to be proactive forces in their communities and develop ideas for a more innovative economy. Falcon Houses provides students, faculty and staff with a sense of place and belonging above and beyond what they feel in their classrooms.
Fort Worth Country Day has an institutional commitment to the principles of diversity. In that spirit, the School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, creed, color, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability or national origin in admissions, the administration of its educational policies, financial aid, athletics, and other School-administered programs.
