What do you envision for your child?


Almaden Country Day School in San Jose is the first choice for parents who are looking for the right balance of academic rigor and joyful exploration. We provide a safe, stimulating and empowering environment where love of learning grows and students thrive. As a result, our students are always well prepared to advance to their next level — confident academically, socially, and emotionally.

Families come to our private school in San Jose from a variety of areas throughout Silicon Valley, with the majority residing in Almaden Valley, Willow Glen, Blossom Valley, Los Gatos, and Evergreen. Our supportive, active parent community is an important part of what makes ACDS successful. 

Our website only begins to describe our delightful students, our amazing teachers and all of their talents and passions. We encourage you to visit us in person and get a first-hand look at our approach to teaching and learning.

Call, email or fill out a form to set up a tour.  Or, attend an open house during the school year. 

The Admissions Team is here to help you learn more about our programs and the admissions process. You can reach any of them at (408) 997-0424, or contact one of our staff members directly.
