Learning & Curriculum

The Country Day curriculum focuses on critical thinking through academic disciplines. The sciences explore nature from the tiniest particle to the infinite universe, and mathematics is expressed as the language of nature. The humanities and social sciences engage the question of how we should live, and our students interpret the world around them through the visual and performing arts. 

Academic excellence permeates the Pre-K through Grade 12 experience in a style unique to Country Day with its emphasis on:
  • Individual achievement
  • Cooperative learning
  • Experiential learning
  • Integration of subjects
  • Sequenced development of independence in learning
  • Varied teaching methods
  • Learning applied in service to others
  • Expansive use of educational technology
  • Encouragement of individual expression and creativity
  • Challenge at all levels
    • Department of Applied Technology
