Thank you for taking the time to browse the Fort Worth Country Day website.
I hope you will read about our community service efforts, learn about our honor code, dive deeper into our robust curriculum, note our core values, and get a sense of our fine arts and athletics opportunities. With just a few clicks, you will learn a great deal about FWCD. The website does its job of giving you a sense of who we are, what we value, how we got here and, most importantly, what we do as a school day in and day out.
As you do your research, pay particular attention to the School's distinctions. We are one of only 50 Malone Scholars schools in the country (the only such school in Texas). We are as proud to host a long-standing chapter of the Breakthrough Collaborative (a phenomenal national organization providing motivated students from public schools an opportunity for enriched academic experiences), as we are to be a founding member of the nation’s only synchronous (live, not recorded) online learning program for high schools (through the Malone Schools Online Network and Stanford University).
We provide the finest of athletics and fine arts opportunities to our students, including both a celebrated ballet program that begins in fourth-grade and 23 varsity sports. Our commitment to learning through community service is part of who we are as a school with all divisions engaging in service-related programs. We also engage learners from outside our community through the Duke Talent Identification Program (TIP), which brings high-achieving students to our campus twice a year for special Academic Adventures workshops. All of this happens on a truly stunning 104-acre campus (take a drone flight through the campus
While giving you lots of insights on our school, though, a website can only go so far. The magic happens when you go from being online to in-person. When you are in the audience to see Seussical or to watch students wrangle steers in our time-honored Kindergarten Rodeo, when you talk to an eighth-grader about hiking the South Rim Trail during his Big Bend Trip, when you get a front-row view of a hard-fought field hockey game, and, mostly, when you meet FWCD faculty and students in person, then you really start to know our school and our community. We are eager to share our story with you in person. I hope we get the chance to welcome you to campus and to tell you more about our school. Thank you for your time and interest.
