The dreamers and the architects. The creators and the adventurers. The scientists and the poets. The minds that can’t be boxed. The feet that find undiscovered paths. The hands that shape the cutting edge. An energizing, uplifting community. A bold and challenging academic experience. An education that is singular—and singularly excellent. This is Madison Country Day School: The independent school for independent minds.
Our academic program instills essential skills and habits: critical thinking, effective communication, creative problem-solving. We make connections between disciplines; we think broadly and explore deeply; we cultivate individual ambition and collective discovery. In engaging classes and advisories, our faculty meet students where they are, help them develop minds that are courageous and compassionate, flexible and forward-looking. Our work is given shape and purpose by the International Baccalaureate (IB), a singularly engaging learning framework that is respected around the world.
