The mission of The Greenwich Country Day School is to enable all children in our care to discover and to develop what is finest in themselves- to achieve high standards in their studies, in their play, and in their character.
We are committed to the ideal of a coeducational family school.
We recognize that every child is an individual who possesses unique talents and abilities.
In an elementary school program, we promote consideration of others, value diversity, and teach respect for all people.
The Greenwich Country Day School maintains high academic standards, a broad and balanced curriculum, and time-honored traditions.
We encourage children to take intellectual risks.
The school prepares students for rigorous secondary school studies and endeavors to foster a love of learning that endures.
We believe the quality of our faculty is essential to the achievement of our mission.
