Signature Programs

A World Built for Students. So They Can Take on the World.

Academic rigor is at the heart of our school mission. Through our selection of Signature Programs: Leadership, STEAM, Public Speaking, Outdoor Education, and Global Citizenship, our students become active and confident learners, ready to take on the challenges of the 21st century. An education here lays the foundation for a successful public or private secondary school experience at some of the top high schools in the nation. Our alumni are known for making a mark on the world, leading the way in careers such as astrophysics, law, education and film production. All of this begins here, where students are empowered to work one-on-one with teachers to explore their interests, and the world outside, on our 23-acre campus.
At The Country School, we are committed to a curriculum that prepares students to thrive alongside the top scientists, historians, mathematicians, writers, artists, and thinkers anywhere. But we also believe that to be truly valuable, truly lasting, an education must also foster social and emotional growth.

We have developed five mission-driven signature programs:
Elmore Leadership, STEAM, Public Speaking, Outdoor Education, and Global Citizenship. Starting with our youngest students, everyone in our school engages in a series of activities and experiences designed to teach collaboration and communication, critical thinking, and creativity. Students learn what it means to be kind, to empathize, and to really listen to others. They learn the value of cooperation and teamwork and what it's like to persevere through challenges.
