About PCD

Our Leadership

Head of School Welcome

Providence Country Day sparks the innate curiosity in all learners to actively participate in their education, not just observe or passively partake.
Despite the extraordinary challenges we have all faced individually and collectively, the past two years have been transformative for Providence Country Day School. Our dedicated and dynamic faculty and staff have provided an island of normalcy during these years of turmoil and uncertainty. I could not be prouder to lead this incredible institution.

Throughout the pandemic, PCD has demonstrated resilience and an ability to thrive. In addition to providing on-campus instruction and honoring tried and true school traditions, we also launched the PCD Quest, our strategic approach to fundamentally change the independent school experience and meet the changing times.

The 21st century has ushered in an era of extraordinary transformation and proliferation of information. As the Providence Country Day School looks towards our centennial and the century beyond, our highest duty is to provide an education that prepares our students to succeed in life. At PCD, we see a world that is changing so rapidly, it demands a different kind of education than the traditional prep school model. We are redefining that model, transforming it, and setting a new standard for private education. To this end, we launched the PCD Quest to reset our tuition, create the PCD Playbook, and found the PCD Online Academy. By taking these steps to make PCD more accessible, personal, and relevant for all our families, we look forward to more students taking advantage of what PCD has to offer and joining our next generation of alumni as they impact a changing world.

As you investigate the ultimate question, why PCD, I invite you to explore our website and social media channels, to read about the PCD Quest, to hear from our talented students, alumni, and parents, and to discover why PCD might just be the perfect learning environment not only for your child, but also for your family. Visit us virtually or in person to see why our intentionally small school inspires greatness and changes lives.

You will learn, as I did, that Providence Country Day is guided by a team of dedicated and passionate educators who encourage our students to be their most authentic selves and work to prepare them for the intellectual, creative, and social challenges of the 21st century. Start your Quest today. Go Knights!
