Cincinnati Country Day School (abbreviated Country Day or CCDS) is a private, Independent School located in Indian Hill, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati.
Inspired by the Country Day School movement, which began in Baltimore twenty years prior, the school was founded in 1926 and now enrolls approximately 870 students from early childhood through high school. Starting in the fall of 1996, students 5th grade and above were equipped with laptop computers as part of the "Anytime Anywhere Learning" program. The school is an international leader in technology integration utilizing tablet computers on a wireless campus. The school also conducts Tablet Conferences "INKstitutes" several times each year to help other schools extend their technology integration. In 6th grade, the students receive their own web-page on the school server. The school newspaper, which is also online, is called The Scroll (www.scrollonline.net), and is part of the National Scholastic Press Association. Each year, 100% of graduating seniors attend four-year colleges, and in 2013, 36% of the senior class was National Merit recognized and 48% of the classes of 2012 and 2013 were recognized by the College Board as Advanced Placement Scholars. The school sits on a 62-acre (250,000 m2) campus in Indian Hill, Ohio.
The school gained some national attention when, in the 2000 box-office hit, Traffic, a character claimed to be a student of Cincinnati Country Day School. Mention of the name has since been deleted from the film, but was cause for controversy due to the character's use of drugs in the movie.
