- At DCD, we believe that balance matters-in learning and life. We combine academic challenge with support; pedagogical tradition with innovation. Strong scholastics combined with outstanding arts and athletics create a program that is balanced and whole. Here, a premium is placed on both academic and emotional intelligence. Children learn who they are as diverse individuals and how to be part of something bigger. Acceptance is a given, and children find encouragement in every connection they make. It`s a community that nurtures, nudges, and gives. That`s how we grow "whole" children-and, ultimately, adults who will thrive with the intellectual and emotional capacity to contribute to their world and enjoy meaningful lives. Visit us, and you`ll get a sense of how our students learn to think creatively and critically. You`ll see that from Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 8, kids are being kids-and being themselves. You`ll witness them tackling hands-on projects, collaborating, taking risks, solving problems-and, most of all, enjoying their experience. Explore DCD through our admissions events and a personal tour. Our 17-acre campus is just minutes from Route 128 in Dedham and offers children a wonderful space for outdoor learning, play, and athletic competition. Open House: October 27; Classroom Observations: October 11 and November 13. Please visit our website for admissions event details or email email@example.com with any questions.

Our children started at DCD in 2007 in grades 4, 2 and Pre-K. From our first visit as prospective parents, we felt the special sense of community and connectedness that is a hallmark of the school. Teachers and students alike were engaging, happy and completely immersed in the school day. While at DCD, my children developed into engaged learners, well-rounded athletes, skilled artists (we have a musician, an actress, and a visual artist), strong self-advocates, and confident young adults. They were incredibly well prepared for high school, and two have gone on to successful college experiences with the life skills that began at DCD.
