Welcome to Tucson Country Day School

Tucson Country Day School, where every student is a Champion, and every Champion is a Leader!  We are a tuition-free, public charter school serving students in Kindergarten through 8th grade.

Thank you to everyone who came out for our 50th Celebration Saturday! It was an absolutely beautiful day to be outside on our school’s 10-acre campus playing with giant volleyballs and slingshots; watching our Band, Choir and Drama Club perform; checking out the fabulous artwork; taking part in multiple arts, science, technology and 50th-related activities; and so much more!

We had a great turnout! It was amazing to mingle with our current Champions, alumni Champions and guest Champions! Alumni from the FIRST graduating class at TCDS all the way to future young students turned out for the 50th Celebration. It was an incredible day for all!

**Pictures will be coming soon on Champion News and our school Facebook page.**
