School History

Founded in 1971 by Larrie and Bjorg Wanberg as Evergreen Creative Preschool, Evergreen Country Day will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2021.

Utilizing various rented church spaces for nearly twenty years, in the early 1990s and after being renamed Evergreen Mountain School, the school relocated to leased space in the Bergen Park Shopping Center and remained there until Evergreen Country Day School’s current campus was purchased and constructed in 2005.

In 2003 four families, known as our Founding Families, were determined to find a permanent home for the school and to ensure its long-term viability. As a result, Evergreen Mountain School was reincorporated as Evergreen Country Day School and the modern era of our learning community began.

Over the last fifteen years, Evergreen Country Day has purchased and constructed the main campus, earned accreditation through the Association of Colorado Independent schools, added a vibrant middle school, increased enrollment, and implemented signature academic programs such as: computer science, Tinker Time, Journeys, and STEAM School.
