Shore Country Day School provides a challenging educational program for children from Readiness through ninth grade.
We seek to create a stimulating learning experience for our students, recognizing the various developmental stages of children as they grow.
Working in partnership with the family, Shore encourages academic, personal, creative, and physical development consistent with each child's potential.
Faculty members are committed to establishing teaching styles which allow students to become critical thinkers who possess self-confidence and personal integrity.
We believe in communicating standards of performance and behavior so that children can become reliable citizens who take responsibility for their own actions.
We encourage them to find strength in diversity, appreciate differences of opinion, and recognize the necessity for mutual respect among all individuals.
By developing a willingness in each child to take appropriate risks in such a supportive learning environment, we inspire in our students a genuine love of learning.
