From the first day of school to graduation from Country Day, children experience innumerable formative moments: The first homework assignment. The first best friend. The first lab report, five-paragraph essay, unicycle ride, and first “Danza de los Viejitos.” As a nursery to grade 9 school, Country Day is often central to families’ lives for more than a decade, a hub of family activity, a place where siblings cheer for each other on Field Day, where the tireless efforts of parents make such events as Family Chess Night and the Speaker Series a success, and where hundreds in our extended community come out for the fall Walkathon.

Students do discover what is finest in themselves at Country Day, and when they return to campus after graduation they are often greeted with: “Welcome home!”
