Thank you for supporting Wakefield Country Day School during Give Local Piedmont to fund the future of our beloved school for the next 50+ years! 

Without the generosity of our donors, we wouldn't be able to provide the excellent classical education at the incredible value that we do.

Since our founding in 1972, serving our students has been at the heart of everything we do. Our students span a variety of backgrounds and ages– from as young as 3 years old, all the way to high school age– and we equip them with the tools they need to make a meaningful impact on the world.

Your generosity allows us to continue this mission for years to come. Thank you for supporting us today!



To develop each student’s character and intellect to the student’s fullest potential, encouraging scholarship, diligence, and self-discipline as well as respect for and service to others within a curriculum that emphasizes learning in the classical tradition.


The motto of WCDS is Virtus et Sapientia (virtue and wisdom). We believe that a school should be a place for serious scholarly inquiry, dedicated to the pursuit of truth leading to personal and academic excellence. We pride ourselves on offering an education designed to produce students who possess strong critical thinking and analytical skills; who write well and are well versed in public speaking; who are computer literate and motivated by a high sense of ethical responsibility. WCDS also takes seriously the dictum mens sana in corpore sano (a sound mind in a sound body) and believes that physical fitness  is integral to a student’s intellectual life as are visual and performing arts.
