Courage and Confidence since 1880


An independent, preparatory school for girls in grades 5-12. Educating women of Courage and Confidence since 1880.

At Newton Country Day School, girls from over 50 communities in greater Boston come together to develop Courage and Confidence, as well as the skills required for intellectual, athletic, spiritual, and artistic exploration and accomplishment.

In our 143rd year of educating "the whole woman with a view to the age and circumstances in which she lives," Newton Country Day welcomes students who choose from over 120 different courses (including more than 30 honors and Advanced Placement classes) offered in ten academic departments. Students in all grades engage in a Health and Wellness Curriculum which centers on the importance of both physical and social-emotional health. Students in Grades 10 and 11 are eligible to participate in our unique International Sacred Heart Network Exchange program, a fully immersive experience that engages the power of the Sacred Heart Network to prepare our students for global citizenship. 

Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart is a member of the International Network of Sacred Heart Schools, the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools, the National Association of Independent Schools, and the Association of Independent Schools in New England.

The community makes NCDS a special place. I always feel so comfortable being myself and love having the unconditional love and support from the girls in my class.T. Field ’19
