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.
On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, welcome to the Providence Country Day School! We are Rhode Island’s most joyful place for students and families to learn.

As we embark upon celebrating our 100th anniversary, PCD enters its second century with momentum and excitement. Our school motto, Play the Game, sets the tone for all facets of school life. Our students Play the Game by taking risks, discovering hidden passions, and challenging the status quo.

Thanks to a groundbreaking merger with the Henry Barnard School in 2021, Providence Country Day now serves 375 students in Pre-K thru Grade 12 on our beautiful 35-acre campus in East Providence. We are big enough to provide a robust co-curricular program, and small enough to guarantee that every child is supported and challenged to ensure their potential is fully realized.

One of my greatest challenges is describing the magic that happens here on our campus. Some things you just need to see with your own eyes. I hope that we have piqued your interest enough so that you will come see the PCD community in action on our campus. 

Go Knights!
