Room to Grow


Country School's program is Pre-K through Grade 9 by design. The ages of three through 15 are among the most crucial years of a child's academic, creative, moral and physical development. Throughout their journey here, students are equipped with exactly what they need to take the next leap: from subject to subject, grade to grade, and from Country School to the nation's best high schools, colleges and beyond.


Children thrive in an environment that offers small classes and ample indoor and outdoor space to create, question, experiment and explore. Located in suburban Fairfield County, 45 miles from New York City, our stunning 85-acre campus is an oasis of learning for children ages 3 to 15.  
Our students have room to grow, as each of our academic divisions offers large classroom spaces as well as dedicated spaces for visual and performing arts, music, science, maker, woodshop and athletics. In addition, our compassionate and dedicated faculty create a nurturing environment and offer many opportunities for one-on-one and small group instruction throughout each school day.
