Country Day will open on a regular schedule on January 19. Administrators have monitored the weather and surrounding roads for safe travel. Thanks to our plant operations team, the campuses are clear and ready for school.
We understand that some neighborhood roads may not be completely cleared. Please make the safest decision for your family or student driver in the morning. If you believe roads in your neighborhood are unsafe for travel, please do not drive to school until you feel it is safe to do so.
Our two campuses include a full range of facilities that provide our student-athletes the spaces they need to train effectively and compete at the highest level. Facilities are also used throughout the school day by students in our Lower and Middle School physical education classes. Highlights include: 11 natural grass playing fields, two gymnasiums, indoor and outdoor tracks, two sports medicine facilities, and a large weight room.
