Fairfield Country Day School (FCDS) is a private, single-sex day school in Fairfield, Connecticut, United States. Founded in 1936 by Laurence W. Gregory, the school has since its inception admitted only boys.

Athletics

Athletics are important at FCDS. Lessons in sportsmanship, teamwork, competition, and how to win and lose gracefully are an integral part the program. All students participate in either team or intramural sports. K-3 students partake in sports during the regular school day. Beginning in the fourth grade, students take part in sports after school. Students in fourth and fifth grades play on intramural Blue and White teams which include football, soccer, ice hockey, basketball, baseball and lacrosse. Sixth grade students participate in interscholastic sports against other schools in the area. In grades seven through nine, boys can try out for and join junior varsity and varsity teams that compete in the Fairchester Athletic Association. These sports include soccer, football, cross country, ice hockey, basketball, baseball, lacrosse and squash.

Accreditation

FCDS is accredited by the Connecticut Association of Independent Schools and approved by the Connecticut State Department of Education. FCDS is also a member of the National Association of Independent Schools, the Fairchester Independent Schools, and the International Coalition of Boys’ Schools. [2]
