In keeping with the School’s overarching purpose and core values, we want our Middle School students to be the best they can be and to lead by example. At Fort Worth Country Day, students learn responsibility and the importance of getting involved in their communities. This involvement inspires the courage to lead and the commitment to serve. The character traits and values formed here ensure that your child is poised for success—in school and beyond.
Each Middle School grade participates in at least one community service project per year. Fort Worth Country Day fifth-graders host the Recycle Your Bicycle and Ride-A-Thon benefitting the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Tarrant County; sixth-graders assemble Birthdays-in-a-Bag for the Tarrant Area Food Bank; seventh graders visit the Pythian Home, providing tutoring services and a playful distraction to the children living there. All of this leads to a large-scale, eighth-grade philanthropy project called Falcons for Fort Worth. This culminating Middle School project allows students to hear presentations from various nonprofit organizations in the area and choose where to donate a set amount of money.
As students give their time, energy and talents to address specific needs in our region, they build leadership skills and cultivate a deep commitment to volunteering and giving to others
