Dutchess Day School 

Dutchess Day School is a preschool through eighth grade school that values children’s natural curiosity and fosters an enduring enthusiasm for learning. In an atmosphere of trust and mutual respect, students are encouraged to take intellectual risks and to develop independence, confidence, and imagination.

A talented and dedicated faculty maintains high academic standards within a balanced curriculum that challenges students to discover their unique strengths. The school seeks diversity and welcomes families with varied backgrounds. All parents are invited to work with the faculty and students as partners in learning.

Respect for the individuality of each child and for human difference is fundamental to Dutchess Day School’s tradition and philosophy. Students share their talents through collaboration and through service to the school, the community, and the larger world.

Dutchess Day School is an independent, nonsectarian coed elementary school, providing an education to over 150 pre-kindergarten through eighth grade students from Dutchess, Columbia, Ulster, and Litchfield Counties. Transportation and financial aid available.
