OVERHEARD

“Too many people are afraid to make a mistake. Accepting failure helps students develop a growth mindset, which will serve them well for the rest of their lives.”

Dr. Kellie Whited, Science Department Chair and Biology Teacher

“What I hope I see is a student body that feels they are empowered to name any issue that they see– it's their campus. We want every student and faculty member to see this as their home.”

Rachelle Doyle, Director of Advancement

“The ability to think critically really gives me a sense of confidence. When I'm able to form strong arguments or really strong opinions, I feel like I'm capable of making change.”

“To make friends at Country Day is so easy. Even in class, they are so welcoming to new ideas, and it's just so much collaboration that really helps you develop here.”

Ryan '23

"They don't have to always have an answer. But the thing is to keep asking the questions, to keep digging deep, to keep thinking...I think that's the best part of what we give them." 

Kristi Mathisen, Lower School Humanities Chair

HAPPENING IN THE HALLS

20th Annual Greek Olympics

Students then competed in advisories representing their chosen city states in various events to mark the culmination of their study of ancient Greece.
