Eas­ton Coun­try Day School

New Haven Register (Sunday) (New Haven, CT) - - EDUCATION OUTLOOK - MEM­BER: CON­NECTI­CUT AS­SO­CI­A­TION OF IN­DE­PEN­DENT SCHOOLS, Ac­cred­ited by the New Eng­land As­so­ci­a­tion of Schools and Col­leges

Eas­ton Coun­try Day School uses its small size and a unique, in­di­vid­ual ed­u­ca­tional ap­proach to en­sure each child not only achieves aca­demic ex­cel­lence in a safe and lov­ing en­vi­ron­ment, but also learns those skills nec­es­sary to be a car­ing and re­spon­si­ble cit­i­zen. We build a re­la­tion­ship with each child. This, and our in­no­va­tive scheduling meth­ods, gives us the flex­i­bil­ity to place chil­dren in classes that fit their aca­demic and so­cial needs and to re­spond rapidly to change and growth in each child. ECDS of­fers rig­or­ous aca­demics shaped to the in­di­vid­ual child in a fa­mil­ial en­vi­ron­ment that en­cour­ages ac­com­plish­ment, re­spon­si­bil­ity and ac­cep­tance of diver­sity. We of­fer pro­grams for the highly gifted, and we em­pha­size the fine arts. We teach chil­dren how to learn, pre­par­ing them for life be­yond school. Our highly aca­demic and in­ti­mate high school en­cour­ages stu­dents to chart their own course through their four years, in­cor­po­rat­ing lo­cal col­leges and in­tern­ships into their pro­gram. We of­fer cour­ses from tu­tor­ing all the way to col­lege credit. Our Praesto Prepara­tory di­vi­sion ad­mits twice ex­cep­tional chil­dren need­ing spe­cial ed­u­ca­tion as well as gifted op­por­tu­ni­ties. We now proudly of­fer Ar­row­smith, an ex­tra­or­di­nary cog­ni­tive pro­gram that strength­ens learn­ing ca­pac­i­ties for stu­dents with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties. Its premise is that learn­ing is not fixed, but can be mod­i­fied through prin­ci­pals of neu­ro­plas­tic­ity. ECDS seeks to en­able our stu­dents to de­velop their full aca­demic, moral, cre­ative and phys­i­cal po­ten­tial in an en­vi­ron­ment that fos­ters re­spect and lov­ing-kind­ness. We pro­mote ex­cel­lence in in­di­vid­ual aca­demic achieve­ment in the con­text of our motto “Re­spon­si­bil­ity, In­tegrity, Com­mu­nity – Praxis.” We cul­ti­vate mu­tual re­spect and kind­ness, as well as civic re­spon­si­bil­ity, in a mul­ti­cul­tural en­vi­ron­ment where we can en­cour­age the de­vel­op­ment of ac­com­plished, car­ing, and re­spon­si­ble hu­man be­ings.
