Fort Worth Country Day is the largest independent, co-ed JK-12 college preparatory program in Fort Worth, Texas with almost 1,100 students celebrating a 59-year tradition of blending academics, the arts and athletics.
At FWCD, our mission and purpose is to foster intellectual, physical, emotional and ethical development that inspires the passion to learn, the courage to lead and the commitment to serve. Our core values of integrity, kindness, courage, respect, responsibility and scholarship provide our students with an ethical compass and give greater purpose to education. Knowledge and values are what carry students beyond academics and toward life achievement. Our role reaches beyond the classroom. It is woven into the fabric of Fort Worth and places around the globe where our alumni are engaged citizens and thoughtful leaders reaching for still loftier heights. We stand for inclusivity, because understanding and respecting differences not only inspires compassion and empathy, but also fosters intellectual curiosity and creativity. Those charged with this influential teaching and mentoring embrace an honorable burden to be the air beneath these wings. They exemplify unparalleled qualities of excellence in traditional measures. But their real differences are tested in their ability to engage, connect, nurture and unleash a child’s potential.
