The Country School's mission is to provide an outstanding academic experience for our students.
We do so by adhering to some simple, but time-tested and powerful basics: small classes, individual attention, and an appropriate level of challenge for each of our learners all in a warm and nurturing family setting.
Our school, while traditional and structured, is also wonderfully innovative, rich, vibrant, and child-centered.
Our program provides our students with an outstanding faculty and with a firm grounding in essential academic skills yet also engenders a life-long love of learning.
