About

Head of School

Welcome to Evergreen Country Day, a community committed to inspiring, equipping, and empowering students to thrive and to live lives of peace and purpose.

Our small-by-design school brings the best out of every child. Intentionally small class sizes afford our faculty the time necessary to invest in relationships with each one of our students. Our relationships-first approach to education combined with our vigorous academics and first-class faculty and facilities make it no surprise that Evergreen Country Day students prove to be superbly prepared to thrive in high school, college, and beyond.

The next step in choosing the right school for your child is coming to campus to see Evergreen Country Day for yourself. While our website offers a compelling peek into our academic and extracurricular programs, in truth, time online cannot compare to time on campus. I invite you to reach out to us today to arrange a personalized tour and to take one step closer to joining a learning community characterized by curiosity and kindness and fueled by a love of kids, an insatiable idealism, and the steadfast belief that the children indeed are our future.

 

Sincerely,
Brad Davies signature
