Thank you for considering La Jolla Country Day School (LJCDS). Here, we understand that students thrive best in a rigorous academic environment where they feel supported and known for their individual strengths and talents. The goal of the admission process is to bring students to LJCDS at a time when they are ready to find success and develop those talents. We truly enjoy working with families who are seeking an education that will prepare their children not only for the world as it is, but as it will be. We develop innovators, thinkers, explorers and humanitarians.  

We invite you to discover LJCDS for yourself. Our team is eager to meet with you and discuss the opportunities that await your child here. School visits and admission events are scheduled throughout the year. Take the opportunity to learn about our academic programs, meet our dynamic faculty and staff, cheer on our athletes, and marvel at our students’ artistic accomplishments.
