"I have never visited a school where the environment is so nurturing, healthy and everyone is striving to create a loving, caring learning environment for their students."
- WASC Report excerpt from WASC Visiting Committee.

Cara Day-McKellar, M.A. Founder and Head of School:
Starting college at 16, Cara knew she would have her own school one day, but wanted to add the science to her gift. She completed her credentials and master's degree at SDSU, and then taught in the La Mesa Spring Valley and Jamul-Dulzura School districts. In 1997, Cara developed a program for families that was adopted by the San Diego Council on Literacy, the third largest literacy organization in the world.

The practices, curriculum, and philosophy of Day-McKellar Preparatory School are based on Cara's vast experiences in the field of education, her work with hundreds of families, and from motherhood of her own four children. Every detail reflects a piece of wisdom about what children and their families need to regain their once naturally profoundly curious state, so they can live with enthusiasm and delight.
