Parents' Association

Welcome to the NCCS Parents’ Association

This active association of parent volunteers sponsors a wide range of programs and events scheduled throughout the school year. Working in partnership with the faculty and administration, current parents support the mission and ideals of New Canaan Country School (NCCS) by promoting communication, parent education programs, community service and connections among parents, faculty and students. The PA also seeks to raise funds for programs that benefit the school community, including financial aid and other PA initiatives.

There are many opportunities for parents to contribute their time, energy and talents to Country School, and over 85 percent of current parents do. Involvement in PA events and activities affords a parent the opportunity to connect within and beyond the school community, provide valuable support to school programs and model for our children the school's ideals of life-long learning and community service. It is also personally rewarding and great fun to participate in this warm and vibrant community! 

If you are currently a Country School family, please log in to the password-protected areas of the site and contact any member of the PA Executive Team for ideas for how you can get involved. If you are considering Country School, we look forward to welcoming you!
