La Jolla Country Day School Academic Center

La Jolla Country Day School (LJCDS) is a co-educational, non-sectarian, independent school providing a college-preparatory education for 1,050 students in Nursery through Grade 12 in La Jolla, California.

The Library Academic Center, located in the heart of the prestigious La Jolla Country Day School campus, is the signature building and new front door to the campus. The new library houses an art gallery, admissions suite and lower school library. An adjacent multipurpose room offers “flex” space – whether auditorium seating for 150, performance, testing or meeting space. The second floor houses the middle and upper school library that includes seminar rooms for small group work and the Learning Resource Center for mentoring and tutoring. The third floor houses staff offices and the board conference room. The Library Academic Center is a facility that demonstrates a commitment to social progress through the school’s mission of preparing students for a lifetime of intellectual exploration, personal growth and social responsibility.
