The Country Day community is proud to honor and recognize the men and women who have sacrificed to serve and protect our country in the United States military, including our alumni. 

Every day, Middle School students pass the Military Wall, which pays tribute to more than 30 Country Day men and women who have served or are currently serving in our armed forces. Located in the Dowd Science Building on Bissell Campus, the Military Wall was created in 2016, thanks to Head of Middle School Warren Sepkowitz, long-time Country Day teachers and coaches Art Hoffman and Mike Hennessey, and former parent Mary Engel.
