Keeping our community and our prospective families healthy and safe is of the utmost importance to us and we understand that the current pandemic makes getting to know us a bit more challenging. We have designed an Open House event that gives you a choice about how to join us in a way that feels right for you and your family – and takes all precautions to keep you safe.

Details and links will be shared as needed following registration, but be assured the Campus Event will be a masked, socially distanced, outdoors only, 1-hour event. Participants will be screened upon arrival. 

Unique Educational Experience
Learning at Rocky Hill Country Day is meaningful and purposeful. Through current projects like Hack For Global Good, FIRST Lego League Robotics, and our Innovators-In-Residence Program, our students experience real-world learning and critical problem solving. Students participate in discussion-based and project-based learning each day, actively engaging in the process that will equip them to succeed and impact a complex world.
FAMILY AND COMMUNITY
The strong sense of community at Rocky Hill Country Day is a result of the deep commitment of our teachers and the joyful environment on campus. Students are known by their teachers and by their peers, and the connection between faculty and students ensures that we are able to identify and support the unique strengths of each child. We are a family school not only because we value relationships, but also because Rocky Hill Country Day parents are closely involved in working with us in preparing our students to be confident, caring, and successful citizens

GRADES K–2

Our Lower School enhances the academic and social-emotional environment that is most conducive to learning, development, and growth throughout the early childhood years. The integrity of the kindergarten, first, and second grade programs ensure 

  • commitment to “knowing” each student, their strengths, areas of challenge, and potential through ongoing progress monitoring
  • formation of relevant foundational skills through developmentally appropriate “best practices”
  • opportunities for students to learn in flexible groups that foster modeling and collaborative learning with peers of the same and different ages, abilities, and interests to expand academic and social-emotional experiences
