Country Day at a Glance
Fox Chapel Country Day School is a small, independent, elementary school providing learning experiences for children in junior pre-kindergarten (age three) through fifth grade. The school provides a foundation that is centered in academics and the arts, in which each child can achieve both academic success and personal self-confidence. Country Day is located in the Fox Chapel Borough and is situated on seventeen acres of wooded grounds within the Fox Chapel parkland area.
Country Day School is dedicated to offering a positive, supportive environment that is academically rigorous while promoting inquiry, discovery, creativity, and an enthusiasm for learning. Basic skills are developed and strengthened through a traditional but flexible program of instruction, complemented by outdoor time for children to play and to explore the natural setting of the school.
To enhance each child's potential for success, the school encourages and provides many opportunities for close, supportive interaction among students, teachers, and parents.
Country Day has established and maintained a solid reputation within the independent school community for thoroughly preparing its students for middle school.
At Country Day School, we believe that the faculty is our most treasured resource. The teachers offer a broad spectrum of talents that enhance the learning of each child. We are proud of our faculty’s creativity, innovation, and dedication to teaching. Each classroom offers opportunities for individual, small group, and whole class learning.
