From the Head of School

Welcome to the Park City Day School. To complement the exceptional natural and cultural opportunities of Park City, Utah, The Park City Day School provides our students with an exceptional educational experience and a unique community environment. In the words of Stephen DiCicco, President of Educational Directions in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, Park City Day School is “a premier school in a premier community.”

As an independent school, Park City Day School is uniquely able both to appreciate and exercise the individual strengths of each child and to address constructively areas of relative weakness. Our caring, creative, and dedicated teachers provide students with the fundamental grounding and orientation to fully realize their potential for personal and professional success in their lives. The collective engagement and effort of everyone—adults and children alike—make our school a wonderfully happy, safe, and stimulating place to learn, to grow, and to work. The best way to explore the opportunity that Park City Day School can provide your family is to engage with the people who have created it—the teachers, trustees, and families who have built our exceptional program and will shape its bright future. Learn more about our Board.

As a former independent school teacher, coach, administrator and previous Head, I am exceedingly proud of the educational experience our teachers and students have at Park City Day School; I’d love to tell you more about our vision and show you around our campus. Please feel free to contact me directly, anytime.
