OUR MISSION

Metairie Park Country Day School enriches the lives of talented young people in a dynamic learning environment, building strength of intellect and strength of character within a community that is simultaneously challenging and supportive. Our students learn to be flexible, to be adaptable, and to face the challenges of life with honor, optimism, confidence, creativity, and a sense of humor.



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. 

Academic intensity at Country Day is balanced by a rich student life, a diverse community of friends, and faculty to rely on for direction and support. Everyone shares a role in maintaining the integrity of our community, and through that responsibility comes an appreciation for all Country Day embodies.
