My son is currently in 5th grade and has attended CCDS since Kindergarten. I am beyond pleased with the education that he has received. The school holds multiple family functions throughout the school year. 2 of my favorites are the Holiday Sing-along before Winter Break and Grandparents day. The teacher's are amazing. They go above and beyond when it comes to teaching the children. They're always there to provide extra support when the student needs it. One thing CCDS provides that I don't see in other schools and are the in-depth music, art, and technology classes. When it came to having to implement remote learning due to Covid 19, the whole school stepped up to make the transition as smooth as possible. The teacher began using Google classroom and ran through a tutorial with the students before school ended for the week. There has been a lot of transparencies from the staff to the parents when it comes to the unknown and finding efficient and effective ways to navigate the children's learning. The school has been amazing to us. It will be hard to find another school that compares to them once it's time for us to leave.

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.
