‘The Country School’ Hosts Open House Tomorrow Afternoon

Field Day fun at The Country School. Students attend the school from Lyme, Old Lyme, Branford, Essex, Guilford, Madison and many other towns.

MADISON, CT – On Sunday, Oct. 30, The Country School in Madison, Conn., will host an Open House from 1 to 3:30 p.m.

Pre-School through 8th Grade families are invited to tour the campus and speak with faculty, families, and administration to learn why parents have trusted their children’s education to The Country School for 68 years.

At 1:30 p.m., there will  be a Kindergarten Readiness Info Session. Assistant Head of School Beth Coyne will facilitate a discussion about how The Country School assesses student readiness, how it meets the needs of all learners, and what you can do to support your child between now and their first day of Kindergarten.

Panel members will include Kindergarten teachers, Beatrice Brett and Chester Sharp, Pre-Kindergarten teacher Karen Chiaia, School Counselor Jennifer Butler, and Reading Specialist Jennifer Hornyak.

Additionally, in honor of The Country School’s 65th Anniversary, the board of trustees is offering merit scholarships to students applying for admission to Grades 4through 8. The recipients of the merit scholarships will be selected on the basis of academic merit and personal promise as demonstrated by performance on school records, in an interview with the Head of School, and on a Merit Scholarship test.

Merit scholarships are awarded to new students and are renewed each year that the students are enrolled at The Country School, provided the recipients stay in strong academic standing and consistently demonstrate good citizenship.

It is The Country School’s expectation that the merit scholarship recipients will contribute significantly to the life of The Country School, creating a stronger overall experience for all students.

Founded in 1955, The Country School is a coeducational, independent day school serving over 215 students in Pre-School through Grade 8.
