About Us

Dear Visitors,

Welcome to the Rockland Country Day School (RCDS) website. Our new website is currently under construction and will be available in the fall.

At the core of our school are talented and dedicated educators who partner with families to ensure the educational and personal growth of each and every child and a school culture that is unique in its ability to embrace and celebrate the individual. We are a small but accomplished school. Our focus on every student and our belief in differentiated instruction allows us to serve our students well.  We also have a long history of educating gifted students.  We have had students who completed high school math in middle school and went on to study MIT open source course-ware in our upper school; students who built working radios, cars, and boats as their independent study projects; students who were recognized as National Merit Scholars; and students whose work in science led to Tri-county science awards.

We are guided by the vision of our founders; we work daily to be an institution of classical education that is forward-looking and innovative, yet grounded in the independent school tradition of challenging intellectual work, individualized attention, and character development. Please visit our Facebook page to see daily life on our vibrant campus. We continue on our journey, firm in the belief that “from strong roots, we flourish.” 

I encourage you to visit our campus. Just forty minutes from New York City, you will find a school full of life, with teachers and students working together with the kind of attention and focus that makes RCDS so special.

Sincerely yours,
Jocelyn Feuerstein
Head of School

“RCDS has been the most fantastic experience for my daughter. As a parent, it is comforting to know that your child is happy and in an environment that is stimulating, intellectual, safe, and inspiring. She goes to school with a smile and comes home excited to tell me about her day. She looks up at me with a smile and says, "I love my school." Not one day this year did I have to wake her up, she usually is awake before me!  I could go on about how incredible RCDS is. Have a fantastic summer and I look forward to my daughter’s next year at her home away from home. 

Much love,

Lisa ”
