New Canaan Country School provides a demanding course of study for students across all grade levels. We strive to guide all students to gain independence in their work habits, confidence in their ability to learn and the ability to retain and master academic material.
The school understands that children progress at different rates, and that some students may encounter learning challenges at various points in their academic development. Beyond the classroom teachers, who are trained to teach, assess, and differentiate, there is a learning resource teacher in each division who works with students with demonstrated and documented academic needs. Working in close cooperation with classroom teachers, the teachers do intensive work in reading, writing, organization, study skills and math.
