A warm welcome – we are delighted you have chosen to explore New Canaan Country School.
Country School students, from Beginners through Grade 9, are eager participants in their education, thriving in an atmosphere of high expectations, mutual respect, and individual attention. An extraordinarily talented and devoted faculty engages our students daily with a challenging curriculum that develops academic skills as well as creative and critical thinking. Diversity of thought, experience, and background enriches our classrooms and enlivens our campus. Individuality and independence are invaluable, collaboration is essential. The end results of the Country School experience are young people who grow daily in confidence, ability, and character.
We hope you will expand your exploration to include a visit to campus. We invite you to call our office and schedule a time to visit with us while classes are in session. Perhaps we will wander into a Kindergarten class immersed in decoding the morning message, or catch a glimpse of our third graders at work on their immigration studies. We might observe a sixth grade class knee-deep in a science experiment or listen in as our ninth graders converse in Mandarin class or debate the solution to a complex geometry problem in their math course. Wherever our campus tour leads us, you will see first-hand the energy and enthusiasm that accompany teaching and learning throughout Country School.
Many thanks for your interest in New Canaan Country School, I look forward to meeting you and to learning about your child. We are all eager to share with you the ways in which Country School’s mission
comes alive in every corner of this remarkable community.
