About KCD

Kentucky Country Day School is an independent, coeducational school with 860 students in grades pre-K through 12. We’re located on a beautiful 85-acre campus in eastern Jefferson County.

We educate the whole child through a rigorous college preparatory academic program as well as a wide variety of athletic, fine arts, and extracurricular opportunities.

Small class sizes (average of 16 students) allow our exceptional faculty to get to know every child and make sure that every student is actively engaged with learning.
Our mission is summed up in our motto: Citizen, Scholar, Steward.
