Letter from Matt Jacobs

Head of School Message

Dear Members of the Wayne Country Day School Community,

Bethany, Connor, Gigi and I are thrilled to be part of the Wayne Country Day family.  The warm welcome that we have received is without parallel.  In our meeting with Trustees, parents, students, faculty and staff we are wowed by the love for the school and the authentic feeling of community.  It is evident that WCDS is a special place and a remarkable school.  

It has been a true pleasure to see firsthand a lively and proud community of mutual care.  The level of commitment to the school is matched only by the level of concern you have for one another.  The school certainly boasts amazing programs, and a rigorous, thoughtful, and innovate academic program, but it is the warmth of the people that set it apart.  I am awed by the academic culture and I know I will learn much alongside a dedicated faculty. The ideal of excellence flows through the academic, artistic, athletic, and activity pillars of the school.  

I have seen the amazing work that happens in the school every day.  I am keen to understand and rejuvenate the school's many traditions.  I fervently believe that together we can create a shared vision for the school's future. We are poised to take great strides as one of the finest independent schools in the state and I am humbled to be part of that journey.  I look forward to meeting with you in the classroom, car line, or in the stands.  I want to hear your stories and hopes for Wayne Country Day School.

I am working diligently with the Board and current school leadership to immerse myself as deeply as possible in the school, its needs, and its strengths.  There is much to be done and I can't wait to work with you all in building the future for Wayne Country Day School.
