Why Should You Choose Country Day?

Each year, the Admissions Office surveys families to learn more about what attracts them to Country Day. These are the top five reasons:

  1. Exceptional faculty
  2. Our Affirmation of Community and sense of belonging
  3. New facilities that promote innovation
  4. Strong parent partnership and education
  5. Focus on whole child and developing multiple passions


Choosing the right school for your family is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. The school you choose should offer an environment that fosters your child’s greatest potential and matches your family’s educational values.

Here are a couple of tips to consider to find a school home for your family:

Do Your Homework

Visit school Web sites, attend Open Houses, and (most importantly) schedule campus visits. Talking with teachers and students and observing the school day in action really helps you get to know the unique personality of a school.
