Tucson Country Day School is an educational institution comprised of a K-8 public charter school, private preschool and prekindergarten program, and Camp Adventure, a summer camp for preschool through eighth grade students. TCDS has been serving students in the Tucson community for over 50 years on an outdoor campus located on eleven beautiful acres overlooking the Catalina mountain range. The aim of TCDS is to provide the opportunity for all students to achieve academic and social excellence by putting the school’s vision and mission statements into practice each day:

At Tucson Country Day School, we put equal emphasis on facilitating academic and social excellence in every Champion. This approach to developing the whole child prepares each student to lead a successful life, now and in the future.
