Courage and Confidence. These words were first spoken over 200 years ago by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart. Here at Newton Country Day, we focus on the same core values that are reflected in Sacred Heart schools around the world. Highly motivated students and faculty of all faiths create a vibrant community distinguished by vigorous intellect, active compassion, and joyful traditions.

As we approach Christmas, seniors are beginning to hear about early applications to college; winter sports teams are competing in gyms, squash courts, and rinks across greater Boston; and both Middle and Upper School students are preparing for Vespers, a beloved tradition in which the girls serve as lectors, singers, dancers, and musicians. We wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

To discover what Newton Country Day has to offer, I suggest you begin by exploring our website. Applications are due by January 15th, while tours and interviews will be scheduled through early February. Regional admission receptions will take place in five locations in January - please join us at one to learn more about what NCDS can offer your family. 

I wish you and your family courage and confidence as you navigate the school application process.
