Since the school opened its doors...

…in 1955 in two rooms in a local inn, we have been blessed with a remarkable community of believers and supporters. We hope we can count on you to make a difference at Dutchess Day School in the future!

There is something about the white school with blue shutters and the iconic fencepost that pulls people in.

Thank you for your interest in supporting Dutchess Day School. DDS is fortunate to have a wonderful tradition of philanthropy from parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends. This commitment to our school allows for the continued excellence and achievement that is the hallmark of a DDS education.

Like nearly every independent school across the country, Dutchess Day School relies on annual fund gifts, endowment funds and capital campaigns to supplement tuition, bolster the financial aid program, operate the school and support construction and renovation projects. Donations are crucial to the ongoing academic and financial health of the school.

On behalf of the entire DDS community, I thank you for your generosity and participation in giving to Dutchess Day School!
