Aspen Country Day School
3 Music School Rd, Aspen, CO 81611
At all grade levels, Country Day combines individualized instruction with a curriculum that blends academics, the arts and outdoor education. Beginning at age 2½, the prekindergarten balances play-based exploration with group instruction. Children gain an introduction to French and Spanish at this level. At the lower school level (grades K-5), each classroom features a full-time instructor and a part-time assistant. The middle school (grades 6-8) places particular emphasis on critical thinking and writing. The physical and outdoor education program utilizes the school's mountain environment. The entire school community devotes eight afternoons during the winter to either skiing or snowboarding. Overnight trips begin in kindergarten, with each grade embarking on two trips per school year. Activities include hiking, rock climbing, backcountry skiing and mountain biking.
