Challenging girls to become women of 
intellect, character, innovation, action, and faith



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.

The school year is well underway, and girls from Grades 5-12 have adjusted to different subjects, new teachers, and increased expectations. Athletes have been competing in field hockey, soccer, volleyball, cross country, and crew, with the winter sports season right around the corner. Songs from the rehearsals for Newsies, the Upper School fall musical, are floating through the hallways as the actors and dancers prepare for the November performances. It's been a busy autumn at NCDS.

To discover what Newton Country Day has to offer, I suggest you begin by exploring our website. Our FAQs are a useful source of information about our class schedule, athletic requirements, tuition assistance, etc. Tours and interviews happen every day, and we have our annual November Open House on the horizon, as well as a Prospective Parent Coffee later in November. You can sign up for both of those events through your Ravenna account.

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