Quote of the Day

"Harbor Country Day is all about educating the whole child with teachers and staff who care, small classes that stimulate thought, and a community focused on children's character and leadership development."


Quote of the Day

"Students are nurtured as they move through our school, allowing them to feel safe and supported by our staff. As a result, they not only gain the mastery of the basic skills presented in our challenging core and co-curricular offerings, but are also enabled to think creatively and work collaboratively to effectively solve problems that come their way - skills essential for success in the 21st century."

—Mr. Joe Ferber, Former Interim Head of School
