Metairie Park Country Day School is a coeducational, nonsectarian, college-preparatory elementary and secondary school, committed to education in its broadest sense.
The School's mission is to prepare its students to excel in higher education and to succeed in a rapidly changing and culturally diverse world.
Country Day's cooperative learning environment encourages individual achievement, and fosters critical thinking, curiosity, creativity, and a love of learning for its own sake.
The School and the family share responsibility for the development of students' personal, moral, and ethical values.
Within this school community, students develop an appreciation for the feelings, perspectives, and needs of others, and a sense of responsibility to communities beyond Country Day.
Students learn to be flexible, to be adaptable, and to face the challenges of life with a sense of humor, with optimism, and with confidence.
