The problems that face our world today require the solutions of tomorrow. By fostering the creative spirit and by developing complex problem-solving skills across disciplines and divisions, Country Day teaches our students not what to think, but how to think.
Each day, our faculty encourages students to explore the infinite possibilities around them and challenges them to dream, invent, construct, and propel themselves beyond the now. As art, science, mathematics, engineering, and technology become increasingly integrated, we are energized the by the opportunity to enhance our learning space to enable our students to forge the solutions of tomorrow.

That soil was then taken to a site on Falcon Road where lower school students will work to uncover additional fossils. Stay tuned as this exciting project continues to unfold.
