Dear Community:

With the launch of our comprehensive campaign in 2014, called THRIVE, we announced our presence as the preeminent school in the region and one of the best in the nation. An outstanding academic experience will always be our priority. We believe, however, that a top-flight education extends beyond greatness in the classroom. Our alumni were inspired and challenged through co-curricular opportunities like art, music, drama, and athletics, through which young people build skills that are the foundation of their future—skills like grit and determination, teamwork and communication, creativity and resourcefulness.

Over the past decade we have been fortunate to conduct significant facility enhancements to the Lower School, Middle School, and arts structures in the Upper School. However, there remained critical pieces of the puzzle that we are addressing in order to maintain an environment that complements our first-rate academic experience.

In this website you will get a sense of what we must do next to ensure that we remain a place where every student can participate in the activities that foster their personal growth. Everyone has a role to play in the success of PCDS, and every student we educate can have an exponential impact on the world. We stake our claim, proud of who we are and who we are to be. Your support enables us to THRIVE.
