Mission Statement

Tenacre Country Day School nurtures and challenges each child, every day.

Statement of Philosophy

Tenacre Country Day School, a small, independent school for children in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade Six, is committed to:

  • Providing a thorough academic preparation for students through a well-defined program that fosters a love of learning and thinking, the confidence to take risks and the commitment to effort
  • Encouraging the social, emotional, creative and physical development of students to nurture the growth of individual character
  • Promoting a diverse and inclusive environment and community, which engenders a respect for the similarities and differences of all people
As a school dedicated to providing an elementary education, Tenacre values the importance of teacher collaboration, the strong partnership between parents and staff, and the meaningful participation of each child in daily school life. We expect each sixth grader to leave Tenacre as a confident learner, critical thinker and caring citizen. As a community of children and adults, we strive to work hard, to find joy and to be kind.
