Social and emotional learning (SEL) enhances students’ capacity to integrate skills, attitudes, and behaviors to deal effectively and ethically with daily tasks and challenges. Throughout Country Day’s 14 grades, we are committed to helping children develop core SEL competencies.
A commitment to instill in our children the values of integrity, empathy and respect for others, and to share responsibility for a better world is at the foundation of Country Day’s “Habit of Helping.”
Experiential education is one of the many hallmarks of Country Day’s engaging, student-centered curriculum. Annual off-campus trips support the school’s curriculum and reinforce the sense of community.
In Country Day’s Farm-to-Fork Garden, located behind the gym, students practice responsible caretaking, learn about food production cycles and the benefits of organic farming, and broaden their awareness of the issues of food insecurity and environmental stewardship.
Country Day’s Makerspace is a space dedicated to hands-on creation and invention. The lab is jam-packed with boxes and bins of materials specifically for student use including two state-of-the art 3-D printers.
