The Countryside Day Experience offers the opportunity for your family to join a community of families that share a common vision for how to raise competent, healthy young adults with a strong sense of agency and a strong sense of empathy. It is also a community in which you as parents can form lasting friendships while gaining critical insights into how your parenting choices can positively impact your child’s growth. Countryside is a community within a community. The students in the classes form deep bonds with their peers. While culture has made the sense of community more and more difficult to find, Countryside has found a way to offer that sense of a home-away-from-home experience that so many of us long for. There is nothing institutional about CDS. Countryside is not a stop-and-shop kind of school. It is not a school that is looking for families that are just passing through. We are looking for families that want to find a school that is such a good fit for them that they choose to stay for the full program.
