Madison Country Day School faculty and staff are recruited nationally and internationally and are passionate about teaching and building an exceptional school community.  Our administrative staff work year-round to support every aspect of Madison Country Day School’s operations, from facilities maintenance and financial management to fundraising and growing the student body.  

Our staff members are equally as vital to our mission as our teaching faculty; without their dedicated effort, MCDS would be unable to deliver the outstanding education that our students deserve.
