The mission of Lancaster Country Day School is to encourage each student's growth within a challenging and supportive academic environment that inspires enthusiasm for learning, the joy of accomplishment, and commitment to community.
The college preparatory experience here is strengthened by our signature programs, including substantial offerings in the arts and competitive athletic teams. Because of our belief in the importance of a global education, we offer many opportunities to travel abroad: exchange programs with international schools, courses that include a travel component, and an annual trip to The Hague International Model United Nations conference in The Netherlands.
We also strive to be at the forefront of technology in the classroom. Every Upper School student receives an iPad from the school, and teachers are strongly encouraged to use apps and other software to make the classroom experience more interactive. At the same time, teachers guide students to interpret nature with a hands-on approach and many of them conduct classes in our on-campus learning gardens. When it is time for our students to think about college, we support them with a College Guidance office nationally recognized for its deep, long-standing ties to colleges and universities across the country.
