At Country Day we value students feeling known and nurtured. Through our academics, we emphasize a culture of teaching and learning that promotes a healthy sense of self and a focused attention on intellectual inspiration.
There are changes facing education today. Many researchers agree that mental health, artificial intelligence, and changing college admission standards are requiring school leaders to decide on the best way forward. At Country Day, our Teaching and Learning committee – comprised of our K-12 department chairs, director of technology, director of belonging & well-being, director of pre-primary, support services, and division heads – is fully engaged in studying the effects of these changes in order to continue making informed decisions for our Country Day community.
We are proud of our faculty and staff who are constantly seeking out and engaging in professional learning opportunities as these opportunities prepare our students to be community leaders and problem-solvers in an ever-changing society. Despite the many changes in our global educational community, we maintain our commitment to the whole child by honoring our timeless traditions and unique Country Day experiences. Our curriculum follows an intentional scope and sequence including AP and post-AP courses, intervention and acceleration programming, and small class sizes that promote a nurturing learning environment for all.
The Country Day community is eager to welcome you to our learning environment where we believe all students have an opportunity to engage their interests, develop their social-emotional skills, and prepare to be leaders who kindle the potential of others in a dynamic world. We look forward to seeing you on campus!
Yours in Education,
Alpacino B. Beauchamp
Director of Academic Affairs
