Capital Business Solutions recently headed to Connecticut in the snow and ice to assist Greenwich County Day School with their Education Edge software.

Working with Tom Hart, Information Technology Manager along with the staff in the Admissions Office and Registrar’s office, CBS provided a comprehensive system and school processes assessment of their Education Edge software. The goal of the assessment was to provide recommendations for optimization of Education Edge to Raiser’s Edge plus provide database functionality, responsiveness, ease of use and to define a plan for moving forward with cleanup, configuration and training items. During the review there were meetings with the staff to look at data entry, reconciliation with an in-house database, reporting needs, table configuration, biographical review, report cards, transcripts, directory, phone lists, crystal reports and the admissions office application management and entry process. As a result of the Assessment, Capital Business Solutions will be working with the staff at GCDS in the summer to handle the first step in the data cleanup recommendations along with an Assessment of their Raiser’s Edge system with the Development office.

Who is Greenwich Country Day School?


Greenwich Country Day School (GCDS) is a place where academic excellence and good citizenship are the twin pillars upholding many hallowed traditions. Students, parents, and staff continue to enjoy the Halloween Parade, Field Day, and public-speaking contests. In addition to the old traditions, equally vital new ones have been established. Today, GCDS has alumni reunions, community service requirements, and laptop computers. These innovations, impossible for the school’s founders to have imagined, fit seamlessly into the classic Country Day education because as each improvement was introduced with an eye toward the future, an equally vigilant eye was kept on the past. Greenwich Country Day’s remarkable history spans a period of over 80 years, starting with the boom period of the 1920s and journeying through the Great Depression, World War II, the bomb paranoia of the 1950s, the radicalized political and educational thinking of the 1960s, the turmoil and change of the 1970s, and the growth and progressive thinking of the past two decades. Country Day’s decision to admit girls in 1942 was a touchstone moment for the school that enabled it to grow as a truly forward-thinking country day school.
