At MICDS, we strive to live into our bold Mission as we cultivate students who are equipped with academic, social, and emotional intelligence. We shape future leaders who can contribute to a more positive, successful, global society by growing the skills and strengths unique to them as individuals.
Originally two separate, elite educational entities—St. Louis Country Day School and Mary Institute—merged in 1992 to form a co-ed School that offered a multidisciplinary approach to education rooted in innovation.
The Board of Trustees serves as the leading guardian of the School's Mission. It is made up of leaders from the MICDS and St. Louis communities who work together to ensure continued success and growth of MICDS.
More than ever our nation needs responsible men and women who can meet the challenges of this world with confidence and embrace all its people with compassion. The next generation must include those who think critically and resolve to stand for what is good and right. Our School cherishes academic rigor, encourages and praises meaningful individual achievement, and fosters virtue.
