We are excited to announce the hiring of Masanori Toguchi Jr. as the next director of athletics beginning July 1, 2021.
Athletics At Country Day
Our Athletics program is a fundamental part of a Country Day education. On average, 85 percent of our students in Grades 7–12 participate on at least one interscholastic team in a given school year. Student-athletes have the opportunity to build lasting relationships with their teammates and learn important life lessons while experiencing the pride of competing for their school. Buccaneer teams have built a storied tradition, earning 136 state championships in the school’s history.
On Thursday, February 18, families from Country Day, Latin, and Providence Day gathered virtually to learn from experts about the landscape of college athletics. The program is a joint venture between the three schools and alternates every year with a program focused on fine arts opportunities in college.

Timmy Gannon, Huck Wathan, and Sam Hedrick have made their plans for college sports official and were recognized at small ceremonies with their teammates, coaches, and families this fall.
