A Reggio Inspired and Nature Based School

The schools of Country Day offer a unique learning experience in which student’s learning takes place both within the classroom and out in our 21 acre parklike setting. For over 25 years, the schools housed at Country Day have educated students to be creative thinkers and problem solvers. We prepare students to enter the global community and share their gifts and talents to make a better world.

Kindergarten through 8th Grade
The International School at Country Day encourages students to develop a world view that broadens their thinking beyond the boundaries of nations. Using a combination of content knowledge and 21st century critical thinking skills, our curriculum introduces students to diverse cultures and traditions, and develops their ability to examine issues from different perspectives.

International Global School

Our students become independent, self-motivated learners, driven by their curiosity and desire for knowledge.

2 1/2 to 4 years old
The Preschool at Country Day is the only Reggio-inspired preschool in the region. Our preschool gives early learners an enriched play-based interdisciplinary curriculum designed to develop the whole child in art, science, language, literacy, emotional and social growth, math and movement – empowering children to explore the world, create meaning, and challenge their own thinking.

Preschool for the Whole Child

A Unique Private School Experience

This school is much more than just a place of learning – it’s a community – where our students develop self-esteem, set goals, and cultivate talents. Students thrive when they are encouraged to work effectively in groups. The encouragement and opportunities students receive will have a significant impact on their lives.

Country Day offers an environment of warmth, support and challenges for all our students, whether they are preschoolers watching the mysteries of the world unfold, primary students making exciting discoveries, or elementary students working together to problem-solve challenging questions. Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, Music, The Arts, Library and Fitness expand our students’ overall experiences.

Our programs are designed to meet the varying needs of our families. The Preschool programs include half-day, school day and school day with extended care. The International School dismisses at 2:30pm with an option for extended care until 5:30. The Camp, our summer program, offers an option for parents to provide their child with the opportunity to explore, to play and to learn… all summer long.

Scholarship Opportunities

Our Country Day Scholars program partners with Scholarships for Kids and Rocket City Scholarship Granting Organizations to empower parents to choose the best education for their child. Learn more about scholarships to assist families seeking to expand their educational opportunities.
