Our two children have attended Canton Country Day School for several years now, and we are delighted with the quality of education that they have received. The faculty and administration are first-rate. We appreciate the emphasis that the school places on character development. The school is simply a wonderful learning environment, and we highly recommend it to any family seeking a private education alternative in Stark County.

Canton Country Day is the right fit for our children because it espouses our values of service to others, creativity, and leadership opportunities which are age-appropriate. Technology is incorporated into the curriculum and with parent communications. The teachers are wonderful and go above and beyond the expected to make each child's learning environment top notch. The school is welcoming and inclusive, open and innovative.
