RHCD Crest

We all mourn the tragic death of Almanny Nunez, an incredible young man and rising senior in our RHCD community. In his honor, we want to help his family cover the expenses for funeral and burial, which will be approximately $20,000. The RHCD and San Miguel School communities are joining together in our support.  Any additional funds raised, beyond the needs of the expenses, will be directed at the discretion of Almanny’s family.

Welcome to Rocky Hill

We are a private N – 12 school located in East Greenwich Rhode Island along the beautiful shores of Narragansett Bay.  Our mission – inspiring each other to discover our true selves and use our wisdom for good – drives all that we do. 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 for students from 34 RI communities. Students can physically, intellectually and emotionally spread out.  With one foot firmly rooted in our heritage and the other in our future, we are excited to see what comes next on our journey.  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.”

Learning Spaces

Our expansive campus, with Narragansett Bay waterfront and 10 buildings,
allows our students to stretch both their minds and their bodies.

The sea air invigorates students and adults alike who dig in, literally and figuratively, to fresh ideas, the soil, or the coastline.

.

At the heart of a RHCD education is communication and the open exploration of ideas and beliefs. Naturally then, our gathering spaces enable face to face dialogue and interpersonal connection.
