From New Canaan Country School

Founded in 1916, New Canaan Country School is an independent, co-educational day school for students in Pre-K (ages 3 &4) through Grade 9 from Fairfield and Westchester counties.

The mission of New Canaan Country School is to guide students to reach their intellectual, creative, moral, and physical potential. We value the imagination and curiosity of children and respect childhood as an integral part of life. Our teachers set high academic standards and challenge students to question, to think, to collaborate, and to act with integrity. The school works in partnership with families to teach personal, social, and environmental responsibility and to create a community that honors diversity and our common humanity. New Canaan Country School inspires students to be lifelong learners with the courage and confidence to make a positive contribution to the world.

An Inquiry-Based Program

academic spotlight

Inquiry is at the heart of our teaching and learning. We encourage children to wonder and explore, to take risks and to be unconstrained by right answers. Our curriculum is deliberately designed to develop our students’ intellectual capacity and nurture their curiosity. We stretch our students and offer them opportunities to innovate, create and play together within a community of learners.
