New Canaan Country School is a nationally recognized independent school for children in pre-K through Grade 9. Founded in 1916, Country School is a place where children are respected, challenged and empowered. It is also a place where childhood is preserved.
For more than 100 years, Country School has enjoyed a tradition of academic excellence, with each family playing an active role in the school community. When parents give time in the classroom, volunteer for the Parents’ Association and generously support the Annual Fund, their participation helps Country School fulfill its mission to “inspire students to be lifelong learners with the courage and confidence to make a positive contribution to the world.”
As we begin a new school year, we would like to take this opportunity to answer some frequently asked questions about charitable giving and the vital role our families play in ensuring the continued excellence of our school.
