Parent Community

Country Day educators, advisors, coaches, students, and parents work together closely and openly to create remarkable outcomes.

Every year, hundreds of parents and other community members volunteer their time and donate their resources for the benefit of our students and teachers. Through volunteerism, friendships are forged, great work is done, and all aspects of our school community is enhanced.

We value and encourage parent involvement and engagement. By finding meaningful, rewarding ways to engage with the school, our parents find their place at Country Day, develop a sense of community, and fuel student talent and passion. Relationships between parents, faculty, students, and administrators are strengthened by parent involvement in the events and activities offered through our school. The impact of our parent partnership is immeasurable and greatly appreciated.

The Country Day community includes an exceptional network of parents who are an integral part of our school. Parent volunteer groups support our students through the generosity of their time and resources, and they help strengthen student programs, build community, and provide additional support through fundraising.

Parent Education Fosters Lifelong Learning

We strive to enrich the educational and learning experience for our families on timely and relevant parenting topics through workshops, book discussions, and nationally-acclaimed speaker events. In addition, the Parents' Association sponsors on-going grade-level and divisional education meetings to help parents with various developmental stages and challenges that arise when parenting.
