“There is no school like The Rumson Country Day School."

– Jayne Geiger,
Head of School


"There is no school like The Rumson Country Day School!" We hear that statement frequently from current and past parents, students, alumni, faculty and staff. For over ninety years RCDS has been the place where children spend their most formative years and experience the sheer intrinsic satisfaction that comes from learning and forming life-long relationships. It all begins here!

On this journey students grow from three-year-olds in the Early Childhood Center who learn to enjoy literature and understand the value of mathematics and play, to Lower School students who become readers, writers, independent thinkers, mathematicians and good friends, to competent and confident Upper School students who can stand before an adult audience to defend a thesis, view history through multiple perspectives and problem solve. It's in our classrooms and with our teachers that students develop their lifelong study habits, work ethic, as well as their integrity and compassion through our four pillars —  Kind, Honest, Responsible, Respectful — which uphold all that we do. And always will. 

Our loyal alumni attest to the enduring difference of an education at RCDS, and our parents, both current and past, truly understand the value of an RCDS education as they watch their children grow into adults. Join us for a visit, walk down the hallways, witness the magic and experience RCDS first hand. You'll soon realize there is no school like RCDS! 

Go Gators!
