Our Global-Minded Faculty
Travel is essential to Country Day’s broad approach to global mindedness. Grants and sabbaticals, funded through our endowment, parent support groups, and other organizations, make it possible for our teachers to pursue knowledge through firsthand experiences all over the globe. They bring that experience back to their classrooms, broadening the global perspectives of their students.
China Teacher Exchange
In 2007, Country Day was the first independent school to offer a full teacher exchange between a North Carolina high school and a high school from the People’s Republic of China. Country Day has sent six Upper School faculty to teach at our sister school, the High School Affiliated to Nanjing Normal University, and Country Day has received nine of their teachers.
