Welcome to Country Day!

We are excited to welcome and introduce you to our school! As we prepare for the 2020–21 school year, we are thinking about you this summer as we plan for the fall. In August, your child will meet many new friends and teachers, but we would like to introduce you to some of our teachers below! They have put together some fun family activities and resources for you to participate in this summer. Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you soon!

~ Your friends at Charlotte Country Day School
