An Independent Choice
Imagining an ideal school experience.
As an independent school, Glenelg Country School makes some assumptions about how to deliver an education for children age 2 through Grade 12. But our intentionally designed program and learning environment use those assumptions as a place to start. In this way, students thrive in unimagined and profound ways.
- Small classes
6:1 student: teacher ratio
- Important relationships with teachers
Teachers not only know their students well; they are role models, advisors, coaches, and friends.
- A tight-knit supportive community
A community united in its commitment to acting with respect and compassion elevates every voice.
- Differentiated classroom instruction
Teachers understand their students well and plan instruction based on different learning styles so each student can find success.
- A range of curricular and co-curricular opportunities
Always something new to explore and a new way to learn more about yourself.
- Academic challenge
Rising to your own next level every day.
- Social and emotional learning
Knowledge only has power if you have the social and emotional capacity to navigate new situations, and the strength to use it well.
Providing an environment where the entire community feels safe and secure is a top priority.
- Open space campus
90 acres of beautiful and secure resources right outside the door.
- Shared values and educational philosophy
An unwavering focus on academic, social, and emotional growth—individually and together.
