Elementary Schools

Two Elementary Schools. One Mission.

Your child’s journey begins on one of our two elementary campuses in the Pittsburgh area, serving grades PK-5: our Country Day School in Fox Chapel or our Junior School in Point Breeze. Both schools champion the same broad curricular values, such as small class sizes, caring faculty and hands-on, outdoor learning.

Country Day School in Fox Chapel (PK-5)

Our Country Day School is located on a 17-acre campus in Fox Chapel, a suburb north of Pittsburgh. We provide a nurturing environment, age-appropriate curriculum, small class sizes and a wide variety of classroom and outdoor activities to inspire happy, active learners.

Junior School in Point Breeze (PK-5)

Our Junior School is located on a seven-acre campus in Point Breeze, a neighborhood in Pittsburgh's East End. Inquiry is abundant in our interactive and dynamic classroom environments, and children are respected as individuals while also learning to be part of a team.
