Inside the Industry: Pre-K through 12th Grade
Metairie Park Country Day School
Mission: Metairie Park Country Day School enriches the lives of talented young people in a dynamic learning environment, building strength of intellect and strength of character within a community that is simultaneously challenging and supportive. Our students learn to be flexible, to be adaptable, and to face the challenges of life with honor, optimism, confidence, creativity, and a sense of humor.
Established in 1929, Metairie Park Country Day School is a co-educational, non-denominational, independent school where care and cultivation of each child, from Pre-K through Grade 12, come to life with exciting and innovative approaches to teaching. New state-of-the-art engineering, science, and art-centered learning spaces combined with our use of advanced technology, support our expansive, rigorous curriculum, opening the world to our students. Our outstanding faculty holds our students to high standards while teaching the importance of individual achievement through depth of inquiry rather than mere recitation of facts. The Country Day tradition of developing an aesthetic sensibility in students is reflected not only in our beautiful 14-acre campus, but also in the rich and varied performing and visual arts program that is a hallmark of our School. Our insistence on intellectual virtues and ethical leadership is woven throughout the daily lives of the diverse individuals that build our community.
Learning in the 21st century calls for the very values and practices that have made Country Day unique since its inception. Our students are prepared to compete on a global scale, and they face the future with poise and vigor. The successes of our graduates in college and beyond are a living testimony to the curiosity, involvement, and creativity engendered by our philosophy and our community.
