Fox Chapel Country Day School

Founded in 1948, Fox Chapel Country Day School is a small, independent, elementary school providing learning experiences for children in Junior Pre Kindergarten (age three) through fifth grade. Country Day provides a foundation that is centered in academics and the arts, in which each child can achieve both academic success and personal self-confidence. The School is located in Fox Chapel Borough and is situated on eighteen acres of wooded grounds within the Fox Chapel parkland area.

Fox Chapel Country Day School is dedicated to offering a positive, supportive environment that is academically rigorous while promoting inquiry, discovery, creativity, and enthusiasm for learning. Basic skills are developed and strengthened through a traditional but flexible program of instruction, complemented by outdoor time for children to play and to explore the natural setting of the School.

To enhance each child’s potential for success, the School encourages and provides many opportunities for close, supportive interaction among students, teachers, and parents.

Country Day has established and maintained a solid reputation within the independent school community for thoroughly preparing its students for the middle school experience.
