A Message from the Head of School

Hello, and welcome to Canton Country Day School!  You have discovered an Early Learning - Grade 8 school unlike any other in the area!
Although our website is a wonderful way to introduce you to our school and our community, we hope that one day, you will be able to tour our campus and experience for yourselves our skilled and talented teachers, specialists, staff, and administrators as they interact with our students.
The relationships between adults and children in our community are inspired by our vision to educate students through an individual lens, igniting them with confidence and character, while developing academic responsibility and rigor in an interactive and innovative environment for Early Learning through Grade 8 students who make up our diverse, curious, engaging, and joyful classes. This is done in order to ready them for the next chapter of their lives! 
Challenging academics always include a network of support and care. Fine and performing arts, physical education, and technology are an integral part of each student's life at CCDS. As the ancient Greeks recognized thousands of years ago, to educate the mind without also fostering character was to fall short. Thus, at Canton Country Day we strive to develop not only critical thinkers but also persons of integrity; we hope not only for successful and happy children, but also ones full of kindness and concern for the well-being of others.
While many schools are having to resort to online/remote learning during this historic pandemic, Canton Country Day School is fortunate enough to have forty acres in which to spread out students and learn!  We believe our students deserve the best we can offer. That is why we are able to open our many doors to the outside, let fresh air in, and teach/work outside on our beautiful lawns, outdoor classrooms, and even our trails through the woods! Our teaching campus abounds in wildlife such as deer, owls, foxes, butterflies and more! 
Please take the time to explore our website and Facebook site fully. Take the opportunity to visit the school and observe our students at work and at play. We look forward to bringing your and your child’s experience to life!
