  • Review Additional Estimated Expenses

    For Junior Kindergarten, Kindergarten and Lower School, the activity fee covers all books, school trips, the yearbook and supplies. Extended care options are available through the campus-based SOAR program. The activity fee for Middle School includes all of the class trips that are unique to the middle school program as well as the yearbook. The activity fee in Middle School will not eliminate bills for certain elective items and it does not include the cost of books and supplies. Currently, there is no activity fee in the Upper School.

    Estimates:
    • Books and Supplies - $500-1000 for grades 5-12
    • Accident Insurance - $25 per year ($1000 coverage)
    • Tuition Refund Insurance - 2.2% of tuition, meal plan and activity fee
    • Additional optional charges depend on the degree to which the student is involved in sports, arts, and academic activities offered at FWCD. Some examples: athletic teams in grades 7-12 require the purchase of appropriate sports equipment and shoes, ballet students purchase annual recital costumes, musical instruments can be rented through FWCD for $150 per year. Seniors have additional charges for SAT and Advanced Placement tests, as well as graduation.

Tuition Assistance

Need-based financial aid enhances the student body of Fort Worth Country Day. The School attracts and retains deserving and talented children whose families qualify for such assistance. The admission decision is based solely on each student’s academic and personal qualities—independent of the family’s ability to meet the cost of an FWCD education. Thus, admission to FWCD and the awarding of financial assistance are two separate decisions.
 
Financial assistance is awarded annually and granted based on demonstrated financial need (determined by submitting a Parents’ Financial Statement, current IRS tax return, and W2 forms), satisfactory performance, and the School’s availability of funds.

Financial assistance funds are made available from several sources, including income from financial aid endowment funds and gifts from individuals and organizations designated specifically for financial assistance. For the 2021-22 academic year, $3.7 million was awarded in financial aid. This translates to one in every four students or 23 percent of the FWCD student body. The average award for kindergarten was $12,144. 

In addition, FWCD has seven Named Scholars Programs (subject to availability):
  • The Malone Scholars Program (for grades 7-9)
  • Jillian Chandler Thompson Memorial Scholarship (for returning African-American students in grades 4-9)
  • The Edward P. Bass Scholarship (for new students in grades 9-12)
  • Reilly Family Foundation/Breakthrough Fort Worth Scholarship (for students sourced through Breakthrough Fort Worth and entering grades 8 or 9)
  • Gayle G. and Evan D. Peterson Scholarship
  • Joey Pollard Memorial Scholarship
  • Betty Reese Memorial Scholarship

Fort Worth Country Day currently offers 21 Advanced Placement (AP) courses. In 2021, 171 students took 492 exams.

Physical Education/Athletics

FWCD’s athletic tradition is renowned. Dynamic Physical Education, which includes lessons focused on fitness development, coordination, body management, and game-playing, starts immediately in junior kindergarten and Lower School. In Middle School, students pursue a sampling of athletic endeavors in a physical education developmental program that introduces them to the sports offered in the FWCD athletic program. Competitive, interscholastic sports begin in seventh grade. Students may choose from among 50 Middle School and Upper School teams. Athletics not only promotes healthy bodies, but it also teaches perseverance, sacrifice, discipline, sportsmanship and teamwork—valuable tools to take into adulthood.

FWCD varsity sports include baseball, basketball (boys/girls), cheerleading (fall, winter), cross country (boys/girls), field hockey, football, golf (boys/girls), lacrosse (boys only), soccer (boys/girls), softball, swimming (boys/girls), tennis (boys/girls), track and field (boys/girls), volleyball (boys/girls) and wrestling. There are three sports seasons: fall, winter and spring. Fourth-grade, Middle School, and Upper School students may also participate in ballet in place of PE/athletics.
 
Varsity teams compete in the Southwest Preparatory Conference, which comprises 18 schools.

Visual and Performing Arts

FWCD takes pride in its fine arts program, an integral part of the 3A’s at the School. Students participate in both visual and performing arts experiences beginning in Lower School and building in-depth and breadth through senior year.
 
In visual arts, students create a variety of works, such as drawing, painting, ceramics, photography, and print and digital media. Students showcase their work in professional displays throughout campus, as well as in art shows and competitions in the community. Students are exposed to all types of media with additional options for journalism, newspaper, video, and yearbook production in Upper School. The Sid W. Richardson Visual Arts Center is a contemporary space that houses art rooms, a digital lab, a darkroom, and a state-of-the-art ceramics studio.
 
Lower School students begin their musical journey building foundational skills through vocal and rhythmic development, creative expression and movement, instrumental ensemble work, and performances to foster a love of music to last a lifetime. Falcon Flyers, the Lower School choir, offers students opportunities to further expand musicianship and performance skills. Students may also opt to participate in The Conservatory at Fort Worth Country Day program after school.
 
Middle School offers a show choir option, which adds the element of dance. Students may continue to pursue choir, including solo and ensemble opportunities, through Upper School. Band, drumline and orchestra are available to students in grades 6-12, where students perform an exciting and challenging repertoire at various events, including football games, pep rallies, concerts and festivals.
 
Theatre classes begin in fifth grade. Students explore movement and vocal technique, as well as play creative dramatic games throughout Middle School. In eighth grade, students participate in a production. Upper School students can choose courses in Acting, Musical Theatre or Playwriting. All theatre students write plays that are submitted for competition. Students interested in working backstage or learning lighting and sound can enroll in Technical Theatre.
 
The School’s celebrated ballet program, which counts as an athletic credit in place of PE or organized athletics, begins in fourth grade, culminating senior year. Dance students learn classical ballet and jazz technique and have the opportunity to perform in full-length ballets and student choreography. Students may also opt to participate in The Ballet Conservatory at Fort Worth Country Day program after school.
 
More than 150 Upper School students in visual and performing arts participate each year in the Independent Schools Association of the Southwest Arts Festival, a three-day festival with 50 other peer schools, presenting students with opportunities to showcase their work, attend workshops, and receive critique from professionals in their field.
 
Each student is required to take a one-semester course of Art History, Music History, or AP Music Theory as a graduation requirement.

SOAR Extended Care and Enrichment

SOAR (Scholastic Opportunities, Arts and Recreation) Extended Care at Fort Worth Country Day offers students a series of engaging and unique programs outside of the traditional school-day schedule. On school days from 3:10 to 6 p.m., students in SOAR have the opportunity to spark new interests, build upon their existing passions, and develop new peer relationships, all without having to leave the FWCD campus. Available to students in JK-4, SOAR Extended Care is led by a team of FWCD faculty and staff, accomplished educators, and experienced childcare professionals.

SOAR After-School Enrichment, for grades JK-6, provides students with opportunities to engage in supervised study, recreational, and arts and crafts activities after school. SOAR Enrichment Programs provide students with specialized instruction and further exploration into and beyond the curriculum. Programs are updated each semester and include performing arts, sciences, languages, sports, visual arts, and STEM and STEAM sessions. 

Summer Camps at FWCD

Fort Worth Country Day hosts a variety of summer camp programs each year that serve as catalysts for generating new skills, friendships and memories. Fort Wonder Summer Camps provide participants with exciting theme-based learning opportunities and activities in an unforgettable environment. Falcon Sports Camps allow students to explore new athletic endeavors or to further develop their skillsets in their favorite sports. In addition to Fort Wonder Summer Camps and Falcon Sports Camps, FWCD offers summer academic preparation/refresher courses, giving students a fun jumpstart on the year ahead.

Library

The goal of the FWCD Library Program is to foster lifelong reading, while preparing students for college-level research. The library team comprises four individuals: one personal Librarian with an advanced degree in library science serves in each division and a full-time Library Assistant. Their backgrounds in JK-12 education and library services provide students with a rich resource. FWCD maintains two libraries that offer more than 35,000 print books, as well as a collection of ebooks, audiobooks, and research databases suitable for all ages.  

Technology

Technology is fully integrated into the curriculum at FWCD. Students utilize modern tools to enhance the academic program. A dedicated group of technology professionals provides support and services to the entire Fort Worth Country Day community.
 
In Lower School, iPads and interactive whiteboard technology are a part of every teacher’s classroom. There is an iPad lab, and the library features laptops for student use. Lower School teachers use technology to enhance the educational experiences of students, integrating technology tools into their lessons in appropriate and meaningful ways.

In Middle School, all students purchase an iPad as a school supply and bring it to school every day. The iPad Coordinator supports teachers and students, guiding and facilitating the use of the iPads, which allows students to grow and experiment using technology in the classroom. There is also a dedicated computer lab in the Middle School, and all teachers have interactive whiteboard technology in their classrooms.

In Upper School, students bring their own laptops to school each day. Laptop computers are used as an extension of the academic program. Research, writing, design, collaboration and communication are hallmarks of the Fort Worth Country Day technology programs.
 
FWCD supports a fully wireless campus with broad, public Wi-Fi access across all buildings and fields. Internet connectivity is supplied through a 1GB circuit and supports more than 700 desktop and laptop computers. Teachers have access to many educational software titles, as well as Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, and many more.
 
A Faculty Initiative in Technology program allows teachers to continually develop new teaching strategies involving technology integration. A distance-learning lab enables students and teachers to engage in selected courses offered by the Malone Schools Online Network (see page 15) and collaborate with worldwide peers.
 
The TEAM Room (Technology Engineering Art Maker) is a dedicated makerspace available to teachers in every grade for classroom activities and projects.
 
The School’s website, fwcd.org, serves as a public viewbook. A private login section of the website serves as a portal for all FWCD communication. Parents, students, alumni and faculty/staff can access teacher and athletic webpages, report cards, assignments, schedules, and directory and calendar information—all online. Electronic newsletters, as well as social media feeds, provide additional ways to keep up-to-date on all campus activities. An auto-dialer, Connect 5, notifies all families of emergencies or closings on campus.

Parent Involvement

FWCD parents are offered a number of ways to become involved in the life of the School. Organizations such as the Parent Faculty Association (PFA), Falcon Club and Supporting CAST (Creative Arts Students and Teachers) allow parents and grandparents opportunities to give their time and talents in efforts to help fulfill the purpose of the School.

Parent Faculty Association (PFA)

The PFA was established to include all parents and faculty at FWCD and has no dues or meeting requirements. They are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of FWCD parents and are in place to support and promote FWCD and provide opportunities for parents to take active roles in the life of the School. The PFA hosts numerous community-building events to foster parent, student and faculty relationships, as well as to raise funds to support the School. Some examples of these events include Carnival, Bingo, Pumpkin Patch, and the FWCD Parent Party. The PFA also coordinates with each division to designate Room Representatives for each class. 

Alumni Association

At more than 4,000 members strong, the FWCD Alumni Association is a vital part of Fort Worth Country Day. Members often give back to their alma mater by serving in leadership roles, giving to The FWCD Fund (the School’s annual fund), and volunteering on campus and beyond. FWCD alumni remain engaged through gatherings, such as Homecoming, the new spring Reunion Weekend, Falcons on the Road, the Alumni Musical Sneak Peek, and various alumni sporting events. All FWCD alumni stay connected through Alumni Relations communications, social media, the Falconer magazine, and campus visits.

Annual Giving

The FWCD Fund, the School’s annual fund, provides Fort Worth Country Day with the flexibility to respond to immediate opportunities to keep FWCD growing and thriving. The tradition of giving at FWCD has always been important and demonstrates the loyalty, commitment and spirit of the FWCD community. Parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty/staff and friends are asked to contribute to this fund, which has exceeded $1 million in unrestricted support to FWCD the past three years. This support allows the School to design new opportunities and initiatives and retain and attract remarkable students, distinguished faculty, and hard-working staff.

Center for International Studies

Launched in April 2018, the Center for International Studies (CIS) at Fort Worth Country Day serves as the home base for FWCD’s international initiatives, including its overseas summer expeditions, exchange opportunities, cultural programs, and global competency professional development. The goal of the CIS is to develop in all students the skills, confidence and mindset to be successful in today’s (and tomorrow’s) world. The center strives to create authentic experiences that foster global competence, fulfill the School’s mission, and create greater global awareness. Through Fort Worth Sister Cities International, students may apply to be part of organized youth exchanges to nine of Fort Worth’s Sister Cities. In 2019, FWCD was honored with Fort Worth Sister Cities’ Eisenhower Award for Organizational Involvement. FWCD is the first independent school to earn the honor, which has been awarded since 2001.
 
Through CIS, FWCD also is one of only 15 schools in North America partnering with Students Shoulder-to-Shoulder to provide ethical leadership development through experiential courses. These courses offer students unique opportunities to work alongside local non-governmental organizations in 12 different locations in the U.S. and abroad as they seek to improve conditions in their communities. FWCD families also have opportunities to serve as hosts to an international student or teacher. There is limited financial assistance available to students who need it for any travel opportunities. If you have any questions regarding FWCD’s international programs, contact Bill Arnold ’86, Director of the Center for International Studies, at bill.arnold@fwcd.com.

Breakthrough Fort Worth

A nationally affiliated program, Breakthrough Fort Worth at FWCD is a tuition-free enrichment program that empowers high-potential, underserved youth across Tarrant County on a path to college they can own. The students’ progressive, six-year educational journey (grades 7-12) builds academic confidence, leadership skills, and knowledge for the college admission process. Fostering that success is Breakthrough’s highly regarded students-teaching-students model, a pre-professional teaching residency that provides program students with caring mentors and their high school/college teaching fellows with guided, immersive classroom management. Because it’s hosted during the out-of-school hours, many FWCD Upper School students and alumni serve as volunteer and teaching leaders in the program. Together, the FWCD family and Breakthrough are helping to improve educational equity.

Malone School Online Network

Fort Worth Country Day is a founding member of the Malone Schools Online Network (MSON), which provides Upper School students with distance-learning instruction through virtual online classes that enhance FWCD’s curriculum. These courses promote the values of the Malone Family Foundation and are taught by teachers from Malone Schools in the network. The teaching professionals are experts in their fields; many have experience with independent education and share a commitment to excellence, small class sizes, and personal relationships.
 
FWCD students in grades 11 and 12 may apply to take MSON courses, which serve as a high school enrichment elective course, and meet twice a week during the regular school day. Each course takes a blended approach, combining synchronous instruction, real-time video conferencing seminars with asynchronous instruction, recorded lectures, and exercises that students complete outside of class. The result lies somewhere between a “flipped classroom” and a “virtual Harkness table.” Each course has a minimum of six students and a maximum of 16, allowing for a virtual discussion seminar delivered in high-definition classroom setups.
 
In the 2021-22 academic year, 12 FWCD students are enrolled in seven of the 48 MSON courses offered. There are 27 schools currently participating in the MSON program.

Community Engagement and Inclusion

Enhancing diversity has been a consistently identified theme by members of the FWCD community. During the 2016-17 academic year, the Board of Trustees’ goals included being more proactive in promoting diversity/inclusivity. The Board decided to set a tone, consistent with the School’s mission, purpose, and core values, through the creation of an affirmative diversity statement. FWCD’s Inclusivity Statement was approved by the Board in January 2017. The statement is as follows:
 
At Fort Worth Country Day, we believe that understanding and respecting differences not only inspires compassion and empathy, but also fosters intellectual curiosity and creativity. We embrace the diverse cultures, experiences and perspectives that comprise and enhance our learning environment. We commit to sustaining and growing an intentionally inclusive community.

If you have questions regarding FWCD’s Inclusivity Statement in Action, contact Nicole Masole, Director of Community Engagement and Inclusion, at nicole.masole@fwcd.com.

FWCD’s Strategic Plan

In 2018, Fort Worth Country Day released a detailed strategic plan, reflecting on where it is as an institution and where it wants to be going forward. The plan and its priorities were created through a highly inclusive and participatory process that included a steering committee that focused on research, environment scans, SWOT analysis, committee exercises, and trends in both the independent and broader education sectors. With the unanimous Board of Trustees endorsement, the FWCD Strategic Plan encompasses four goals:

Goal 1: Inspire innovation and excellence throughout the FWCD experience
Goal 2: Play a more integral role in Fort Worth and the greater community
Goal 3: Expand our access and diversity
Goal 4: Assure sustainability
