Welcome to Rocky Hill

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 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.” 

– Diane Rich
  Head of School

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.
