Sacramento Country Day School is an independent, co-educational school providing a personal, dynamic, and academically-challenging environment for PK-12th grade students. Whether your child is entering kindergarten, 6th grade, or beginning their high school journey, it’s always a great time to begin an education at Country Day.

Our dedicated, caring teachers work hard to know each student personally and reinforce their understanding in creative ways – whether that means dressing up in historical costumes, coordinating art projects with classroom studies, or taking a lesson outdoors. Our teachers help students find their voices, become enthusiastic, confident learners, and develop generous hearts as they meet new academic and personal challenges in a safe and supportive environment. We live by our mission to “think critically, live creatively, and act compassionately.”

Learn more about our exceptional program during our Open House on October 26 from 9AM – 12 PM.

Since 1940, St. Francis Catholic High School students have been encouraged to develop their God-given talents and discover their passions in every area of their lives. Because the young women of St. Francis cultivate a genuine love of learning inside and outside of the classroom, in conjunction with a deeper sense of purpose, they are prepared to succeed wherever they go. And succeed they do—the St. Francis Class of 2019 earned more than $23.6 million in scholarships and had a 99% college attendance rate. Our visual and performing arts students receive regional and statewide recognition in all areas of the arts and enjoy an Arts Complex with studio space and a 500 seat theatre. With 97 Section titles and the 2018-19 Delta League All-Sports Trophy, St. Francis has one of the top female sports programs in the region and the state; in the last eight years, 187 SFHS seniors committed to play collegiate sports. A St. Francis education instills a confidence and commitment that extends far beyond graduation…it is truly four years that last a lifetime.

waldorf school

Camellia Waldorf • Cedar Springs Waldorf
Davis Waldorf • Live Oak Waldorf • Sacramento Waldorf

The Sacramento region is home to five Waldorf schools affiliated with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America. Our shared goal is to provide Waldorf education to as many children as possible, building confidence and imagination through the educational philosophy developed by Rudolf Steiner in 1919.

Waldorf education focuses on a child’s developmental stage, prioritizing wonder, creativity, and imagination as essential childhood values. Rigorous academics in the upper grades provide strong math and sciences interwoven with fine and practical arts.

Music, dance, theater, writing, literature and imaginative play are building blocks for deep thinking and character-building. Teachers focus on students’ intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual capacities.

Waldorf education is an early childhood through 12th grade journey. We invite you to visit our campuses for tours and experience what a Waldorf education can do for your child!
