The Country School
Capital Campaign

Outdoor Education Endowment Fund

Outdoor Education at The Country School is a school-wide undertaking that uses the outdoors as both teacher and classroom, providing unique learning and leadership opportunities for all participants. The Country School emphasizes the importance of the outdoors in programs that begin in PreSchool and culminate right before 8th Grade Graduation. During the course of their years at The Country School, our students hike the Jordan Katz trails that surround campus and master challenges on our ropes course; they paddle canoes along the Connecticut River and Delaware Water Gap; and they climb mountains, scale rock walls, and ride river rapids in Utah. These students travel well beyond their New Haven County campus.

Success isn't defined by the top of that rock face; it's defined by where you think you can go and then you're able to reach that point and then, is it that one more inch?
