2021-22 School Profile

A summary of our Upper School and all that we offer.

Country Day graduates often comment that they are far better prepared for the rigors of college than their peers. When the time comes to graduate, our seniors possess the skills they need to succeed in college and ultimately, in life.

Carleigh OberkfellSophomore at Brown University 

I truly believe one of the best opportunities provided to me during my attendance at Country Day was the incredible faculty I had access to. Not only did I foster long-lasting and meaningful relationships with them, but I was provided with exceptional instruction that rivals my college instruction quality. I think taking multiple years of English and History while at Country Day is crucial to the development of a well-rounded student, and the strong emphasis on writing has allowed me to excel in college."
