At Shore Country Day School, extraordinary teachers and a transformative approach inspire children for the rest of their lives. Deeply grounded in the liberal arts, and enhanced by curriculum-wide emphasis on inquiry and creative expression, Shore’s rich program and caring community help each child find their spark. Shore faculty members are recognized by parents year after year for their ability to engage every learner in adventurous education; they are proud to see themselves as guides and coaches placing students of every age at the center of their own learning. The Shore education emphasizes emotional growth and social responsibility just as much as academic achievement. Recess, physical education, and team sports are core to Shore’s program, and the school’s Community Code exemplifies a deeply felt dedication to the well-being of the whole child. Inside the Center for Creativity, robust offerings in studio arts, music, drama, design, and engineering prepare students to thrive in a changing world that values flexible, agile thinking which crosses old boundaries with ease. Shore’s stunning Innovation Lab is a model that top schools come to study, and its renowned outdoor education and service learning programs—from day trips in pre-K to international travel in grade 9—are the most extensive in the region. Whether inspired by a caring teacher or coach, inspiring an audience through the arts, or finding inspiration in a risk taken, students at Shore discover the excitement of experiencing the world with curiosity, compassion, and courage.
