Miami Country Day School is a college preparatory learning community committed to educating the whole child. Through the core values of honor, respect, wisdom and compassion, we prepare students to be lifelong learners. We inspire our children to develop their intellectual, physical, aesthetic, social, emotional and spiritual potentials by valuing every student every day.
Our Core Values
At Miami Country Day School we prepare children for college and for life by embracing four core values: honor, respect, wisdom and compassion. Students, faculty, and parents are encouraged to live by a set of core values and to act as models for action and behavior.
- Honor fosters integrity and truthfulness, which leads to correct and trustworthy actions.
- Respect encourages valuing the rights and opinions of others as well as acting with consideration towards others.
- Wisdom defines intelligence and knowledge, which comes with experience and allows for good judgment and insight.
- Compassion expects action towards others with empathy, care, acceptance, and understanding.
