Parents' Association

Welcome to the NCCS Parents’ Association

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the New Canaan Country School Parents’ Association, where every parent in our community is a member. The purpose of the Parents’ Association is to support the school’s mission, strengthen our community and raise funds to benefit school programs. In partnership with our exceptional faculty and staff members, the PA fosters a sense of community that is integral to helping our children grow and thrive.

The PA offers a wide variety of programs and events. Parent participation offers the opportunity to connect within and beyond the school community, provide valuable support to school programs, and models for our children the school’s ideals of life-long learning and contributing to our school. There is truly a role for everyone where each contribution is valued and appreciated. It is also personally rewarding and great fun to participate in this warm and vibrant community!

Please contact any member of the Parents’ Association Executive Council should you have any questions or to learn more about volunteering at Country School.  We look forward to sharing the school year together with you and your family!
