Aspen Country Day School

a personal approach to excellence in academics, arts, and outdoor education for PreKindergarten through Eighth Grade

On the Journey View All News
Eighth Graders study US History, and each year they travel to Washington, DC for an up-close look at our democracy. It was a busy five days for this year's Eighth Grade, and their immersion in the culture and urban life of a great American city was a memorable week of learning. Here's their trip report.
Shakespeare in Kindergarten? And every year through to Fifth Grade? That's the Country Day way, as children explore the classic tragedies, comedies, and histories of the Bard of Avon. Young actors and actresses bring creativity and passion to their performances -- please join us on campus for three dramatic days in May!
Tiny videos from Kindergarten about trees and all the many ways we use, enjoy, and appreciate them!
Professional development for faculty and staff gets us out into the big world to absorb and share big ideas.
