WELCOME FROM GENERAL DIRECTOR
Welcome to Country Day School, Costa Rica's original American School serving the international community and local families for more than 50 years!
Today CDS serves 800 students from Pre Kinder through High School from over 35 nations. Our mission, to inspire a passion for learning and provide children with the skills, values, and courage to become responsible leaders in our community and the world, is lived out every day in our 21st century learning community.
After more than 30 years in Escazú, in August of 2016 we are occupying our amazing new campus west of San Jose in San Rafael de Alajuela, in Hacienda Espinal, on Route 27. More than four years in the planning, with the imagination of international architects and collaboration with our various constituencies, we have created the most outstanding center of learning in the country, if not the region, a facility that supports and inspires our mission and pursuit of excellence.
We invite you to visit us and experience Country Day School in person.
