Curriculum

Minds in motion stay in motion

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.

"...a truly great intellect is one that takes a connected view of old and new, past and present, far and near, and which has insight into the influence of these on one another; without which there is no whole, no centre.”
