  • Academics

    Country Day’s educational approach reflects the rigor and accountability of traditional schools fused with the creativity and intellectual flexibility of progressive schools, cultivating students who are not just prepared for college, but for life. Our innovative curriculum teaches students how to think critically, creatively, independently, and to tackle challenges with optimism. As a balanced exploration of the math-sciences, the humanities, and the arts, our academic subjects are not self-contained but connected across disciplines and grade levels.
