During these complex and challenging times, we launched an online parent education series, “Leadership Live: Conversations with Country Day,” to connect our leaders with our community. Through Q&As, presentations, and panel discussions, leaders from different areas of focus—school administration, faculty, students, alumni, and parents—are sharing what they know and what they are learning. Topics include remote learning, college counseling, taking care of our children, and more. 

If you haven't been able to watch the sessions live streamed, you can watch recorded sessions:
