Shore Country Day School, founded in 1936, is an independent coed school grounded in the liberal arts tradition. In the PreK 1 and PreK 2 programs, children learn and explore with others. The curriculum balances outdoor discovery and play alongside social/emotional skill development and experiences in music, Spanish, Library, and the school’s unique Science and Art Integrated Learning program.
All students have access to the facilities, including music classrooms, Omniglobe, Shore garden, and manicured outdoor fields for physical education. PreK students benefit from one-on-one interaction with fifth grade Big Buddies, who read and play games with them. Beginning in PreK and continuing through grade 9, faculty work to inspire independence, creativity, and the spirit of inquiry in every child. The school maintains a student:faculty ratio of 8:1.
Shore’s mission is to provide an education that inspires a love of learning and encourages children to embrace academic challenge. The school seeks to build character, cultivate creativity, and value diversity to help children become healthy, compassionate citizens of the world.

The after school program offers a variety of opportunities for students until 6:00pm (5:00pm on Fridays). Registration is accepted on a semester basis. Activities include sports, games, computers, study time, and special enrichment classes such as chess, music, or jewelry design, among others.
