Preservation and Innovation
Metairie Park Country Day School is a coeducational, nonsectarian, college preparatory, Pre-K through Grade 12 School, located on a beautiful 14-acre campus only minutes from downtown New Orleans. The School has a current enrollment of 730 students taught by 95 teaching faculty; 69 of whom have advanced degrees.
Ours is a culture rich in tradition, offering expanded educational opportunities for young people for more than eighty-six years. At Country Day, we understand that children learn best in an environment that is both academically demanding and appropriately supportive, so we have carefully created a rigorous academic program in the context of a committed and caring community. We encourage independence, foster critical thinking, and train our students to open their minds to limitless possibilities.
Our School motto articulates our mission: “Challenging the Intellect, Nourishing the Spirit, Celebrating Community." We apply the latest and best educational practices in our classrooms while also teaching care and respect for one another and our surroundings. We have fun celebrating both the traditions and new discoveries within our community and the world. Trinity helps to nurture a child’s mind, body, and spirit through a fun and challenging program that offers the best in the academic disciplines, taught by a skillful, experienced, and loving faculty and staff.
