The Country Day School

  • The Country Day School was established in 1982 to provide a thorough, well rounded education for students in grades Smart Start (3 year old), Junior Kindergarten through ninth in a closely-knit, nurturing environment.
  • Academics, individual attention, development of strong character, and traditional values are emphasized.
  • Thus, each student is presented with the opportunity to rise to his or her own level of excellence.
  • The academic preparation must be accompanied by spiritual, moral, physical, and personal development.
  • In other words, the "3 R's" of academic growth must be accompanied by the "3 R's" of personal development - reason, respect, and responsibility.
  • Each student must respect the feelings, thoughts, and ideas of others; he must assume responsibilty for his own actions; he must develop the ability to reason.
  • Furthermore, he must learn to work cooperatively with others towards the mutual goals for the fulfillment of common objectives.
