Who we are

At any school, it's the teachers, students, parents, alumni, and staff who make the difference. Our school family grows each year, welcoming new friends in the tradition of our school motto: de amicitia - the spirit of friendship. Some current parents were once students here themselves. Some teachers have children who have graduated and come back to canoe on the ponds or chaperone Outdoor Education trips. The sense of family -- the sense of a "school home" that children develop here on this remarkable campus -- is part of why Country Day graduates seem so grounded and confident. We are all here to raise children who go on to lives of meaning and purpose. On these pages, meet some of the people who make a difference in the lives of our students -- and of the wider world -- every day.
