<p>Founded in 1983, Alexandria Country Day School offers children from kindergarten through eighth grade an extensive curriculum in an intimate academic setting.</p> <p>With small class sizes and easy access to faculty, students are given ample opportunity to find themselves as they prepare for high school.&nbsp;Spanish is part of the curriculum from kindergarten on, and all the students at ACDS mingle together in the hallways. Teachers are made available for extra tutoring every Tuesday afternoon.</p> <p>The application process is lengthy and begins in the fall before the following school year.&nbsp;</p> <p>Housed in the former site of St. Mary's Academy since 1991, a 2010 renovation added a modern cafeteria, improved handicapped access and a gymnasium with regulation a basketball court and rock-climbing wall. The old gym now serves as a full-time performing arts center.&nbsp;</p> <p>ACDS requires students to wear khaki and green uniforms. A variety of after-school clubs and athletics are offered.&nbsp;</p>
