Founded in 1981 as an early childhood center, Carrollwood Day School has grown to include elementary, middle school and high school. CDS enjoys a reputation for excellence in academics with an emphasis on character development enriched by a wealth of extra-curricular programs and clubs.
The philosophy of Carrollwood Day School is the foundation upon which school policy is formed. It is the framework within which our curriculum is developed. Our school has a commitment foremost to its young students. It is within the environment provided that we hope children will develop a lasting foundation for living and continued learning.
We recognize that an atmosphere of respect, consistency, and concern nourishes a child's natural desire to learn. It is also our belief that the education of children must be in keeping with their mode of learning. It is our hope that our students will not only be skillful and knowledgeable, but also self-disciplined, self-motivated, and self-confident.
