On the Journey
news reel: stories of People, places, and learning AT Aspen Country Day School
Secondary school placement counseling is a service that Aspen Country Day School offers to all families – part of our goal of preparing ACDS graduates not just for high school, but for lives of meaning and purpose. Now we are excited to offer a free resource for families beginning to think about grades 9-12: the ACDS Secondary School Search Guide.
Country Day has a strong, multi-generational track record in this area. Every year ACDS Eighth Graders venture forth to our local public high schools, Colorado Rocky Mountain School in Carbondale, other boarding schools, and independent day schools farther afield. Over the years, we have built strong relationships with the representatives of boarding and day schools nationwide, and our annual Boarding School Fair has strengthened awareness of ACDS.
Schools know our program and respect our reputation, because they see how well ACDS students do in high school. They often remark that Country Day students are not only well prepared for the classroom but also bring confidence and competence to their dorms, teams, leadership positions, and friendships.
