Our Mission

Canton Country Day School is a private, independent school in Stark County teaching 21st century skills in a nurturing environment with small class sizes to students in preschool to grade 8.

Canton Country Day School offers children in preschool through eighth grade a solid educational foundation by cultivating an environment in which scholarship, responsibility, and respect for others flourish along with creativity, enthusiasm, and self-respect. Within this stimulating academic environment, the school encourages children, with the support of their families, to:

  • be active seekers of knowledge;
  • examine their convictions honestly and embrace them humbly, both in word and deed;
  • recognize themselves as participants in a common humanity and citizens of a common universe;
  • discover their own creative powers and labor patiently to surpass ready achievement; and wonder at the mysteries that transcend their understanding and challenge their imagination.

Dedicated to developing character and the abilities to think and communicate clearly, Canton Country Day seeks to fully prepare its graduates to meet the challenges of rigorous secondary school programs and to assume positions of responsibility in their communities.
