Academics

Upper School (Grades 9-12)

Welcome to the Upper School

Welcome to the Upper School at Greensboro Day School where leaders are born, career paths become clearer, and students develop a grander vision of themselves and for their futures. During this important time, when students are gaining independence and growing in their social awareness, we facilitate each students’ development toward adulthood by providing:

  • challenging and inspiring academic programs that support students to achieve their potential in college and life
  • a socially and economically diverse community that honors and nurtures relationships among students, faculty, and community
  • exceptional extracurricular opportunities that enrich the educational experience
  • global perspectives that cultivate respect for others and promote stewardship of the environment
As our students engage in these opportunities, we know that they will make academic discoveries, grow their intellectual curiosity, and increase their self-confidence. Along with the excitement of new adventures and the choices we provide, they will come to take on greater responsibilities, develop a more rigorous approach to their studies, and experience the inevitable teenage ups and downs.

Our mission of "developing the intellectual, ethical, and interpersonal foundations students need to become constructive contributors to the world,” guides our work. We provide a community of students, teachers, parents, coaches, and administrators who work together to allow students to become lifelong learners and ethical leaders who constructively contribute to Greensboro, the greater community, and the world.
 
We encourage you to visit and experience for yourself our unique approach to creating a challenging and supportive environment for our students. When you visit, I hope that I will have an opportunity to meet you and let you know why Greensboro Day School provides your child with unlimited opportunities to aspire, achieve, and advance!

Sincerely,

Edward L. Billingslea
Upper School Director
