• Colleges and Universities
    "When my daughter was in high school, they created a special Humanities in the Sciences award for her. Today,
    she has a PhD in the History of Science, and is teaching at Stanford. It all started at Park Day where she learned that she is an author and scientist, a mathematician and artist…she never has forgotten that."
    – Cathy Shields, Alumni Parent, PDS Staff             
  • After high school, graduates of Park Day School go on to a wide range of studies in colleges and universities. From small liberal arts colleges to large state universities to the Ivys, our students take with them the creative inquiry, deep investigations, empathetic perspectives and love of learning founded at Park Day School.
    The list below represents the colleges and universities that recent Park Day graduates are attending today. We are proud of our graduates for selecting schools that are just right for them, and for doing so well.
    It is noteworthy that approximately 60% of Park Day School alums from the last ten years are attending colleges and universities that US News and World Reports and/or Forbes name as a "top 100 national college/university" or "top 100 national liberal arts college" in their most recent listings.
