Thank you for your interest in supporting Alexandria Country Day School.

ACDS recently celebrated its 30th year, and while that makes us a young school relative to some of our peers, our history is still rich in tradition. From its founding, ACDS and its community of supporters have always exemplified a thoughtful and determined approach when it came to getting the job done. The school would not be here if not for the hard work and vision of dedicated educators, parents, grandparents, alumni, and community volunteers.

32 years ago, ACDS opened its doors across the street with only a few small classrooms and a playground to its name. Since then, through the generosity of countless benefactors, ACDS has blossomed into a vibrant, cutting edge school that has never lost the values that made us special, even in our humble beginnings. A $5 million Capital Campaign, completed in 2012, has given us a gorgeous new gym, cafeteria, and performing arts space- transforming our historic building into a first-rate facility fit for a modern education.

As we continue to write our story, we must cultivate the same commitment to our school that our founders exemplified just a few decades ago. As with all independent schools, we need the support of our community to meet our immediate budgetary needs and to secure our long term vision. Please explore our website to find out how you can take part in this effort.

With gratitude,

Matt Sahlin
