York Country Day is a college preparatory school actively engaged in the pursuit of excellence.
We are committed to every student developing exceptional communication and problem-solving skills by focusing on the whole child, the process of learning, and collaborative inquiry-driven classrooms.
Educating students in preschool through grade 12, we strive to produce graduates who will make significant contributions throughout their lives as self-reliant, ethical, and compassionate leaders.
We seek to encourage in students a love of learning which will allow them to continue to seek knowledge and understanding throughout their lifetimes.
To this end we encourage students to take an active role in the learning process.
Throughout their years at Country Day, students are provided with the skills necessary for independent inquiry, critical thinking, and critical expression.
Although our academic program is challenging and is designed for students who possess high academic goals, we do recognize the uniqueness of each individual child and strive to help each fulfill his or her potential.
We are concerned with the overall growth of our students.
Recognizing that self-esteem is the core of a strong character and that success breeds success, York Country Day provides various opportunities in the classroom and/or through co-curricular activities to allow each student to discover individual strengths.
