At Rocky Hill Country Day School we truly believe that our innovative, high engagement learning experience, set in our beautiful country setting, creates an environment that encourages students to think expansively, try new things, and achieve wider possibilities.
Our campus creates a relaxed and freeing environment. Students can physically, intellectually and emotionally spread out.
With one foot firmly rooted in our heritage and the other in our future, we’re excited to be celebrating our 85th year. Join us!
“The heart of what we offer students is the opportunity to imagine, explore, discover. At Rocky Hill Country Day School, we aspire for them to embrace their curiosity, to celebrate the possibility of the unknown, and to boldly follow new adventures.”
