The school campus continued to expand through the next three decades. The 1970s and early ’80s was a time of major construction as eight new buildings and annexes were built.

As Fort Worth Country Day grew, an active parents association played an important role in the life of the school. One of the school’s strongest assets is the Parent Faculty Association and its dedicated members who volunteer countless hours to every facet of the schools’ life to make it a better place for the teachers, staff and students.
While the parents are supportive of the school, the faculty is as well. Fort Worth Country Day has always had a dedicated professional staff committed to the students and school. To show that commitment, they established the Faculty Endowed Scholarship in 1994 and within two years the scholarship was large enough to aid a student. In 1997, Club Viginti was established for faculty and staff who have given 20 or more years of service to Fort Worth Country Day. The club has a current membership of 46.
FWCD has an active Alumni Association of 2,400 members that is governed by an Alumni Council. The Association recognizes members through several awards made annually and by honoring FWCD graduates who qualify for the Pro Sports Wall of Fame, the Wall of Fame and Buehler Hall of Science. 144 children of alumni have graduated from Fort Worth Country Day and 282 children of alumni are currently enrolled as students in the school.
