How is your remote learning experience structured?

Students in every division beginning with Kindergarten are given a set time to meet with their class(es) via Zoom each day. Middle and high school students utilize a rotating schedule with core academic classes in the morning and flex time/electives in the afternoon. 

How are in-person classes structured?

Students in Lower School (PK-5th) are grouped in small stable cohorts and visit with specialty teachers (i.e. world languages, art, P.E.) either outdoors, indoors by cohort assignment, or remotely. Middle School students (6th-8th) are grouped by grade level and rotate time on campus. High School students (9th-12th) are grouped in A/B Cohorts that rotate time on campus.

My student hasn’t been offered adequate online learning. I’m worried they will be behind next year. How can Country Day help them?

Country Day is well known for its “child-centered” approach, and our expert teachers, learning specialists, and school counselor are ready to meet students where they are and help them to excel both personally and academically.

What resources is Country Day offering to families experiencing significant financial impacts related to COVID-19?

Country Day and its families have always supported one another in times of need. A spirit of generosity and a willingness to help have long been defining features of our community. As a result of the COVID-19 global health crisis, work in many sectors has slowed, and some Country Day families have experienced significant financial impacts. Some families have also expressed uncertainty about their ability to meet tuition obligations for the 2020-21 school year. We empathize with our families experiencing this difficulty, and we are ready to help. Learn more here.
