Secondary Schools Attended by Country School Alumni

Typically about one third of each graduating class chooses to attend an independent boarding school, one third attends an independent day school, and one third attends a public high school. Our students have been National Honor Society members, class valedictorians, dorm prefects, class presidents, and team captains.
