Every Day is a Great Day at Greensboro Day School

Education at Greensboro Day School extends beyond traditional classroom academics to include hands-on experiences, citizenship, community, and more!  At GDS, students are encouraged to explore their intellectual curiosity, develop the courage to think independently, and foster a love of learning.

Whether with the youngest Bengals or the graduating seniors, GDS’s program focuses on character development that will build values and virtues to last a lifetime. As children and young adults grow and develop their concern for others, they enhance their own well-being and enrich their learning experiences.

At GDS, learning is about more than mastering a subject. It’s about helping students discover and develop their unique strengths and talents. Boundless opportunities, phenomenal resources, outstanding experiences — they’re here for the taking at Greensboro Day School.

Mark your calendar for a PK-4th grade open house on October 8. Two morning sessions available: 8:30am and 9:45am. Visit for details.
