About the School

Founded in 1958 by a group of devoted parents, Harbor Country Day School is an independent school for 165 students in preschool through eighth grade located on Long Island’s north shore, nestled in the quiet Village of Head of the Harbor. Harbor cherishes childhood, cultivates wonder and inspires confident learners and leaders. It’s a school where children are encouraged to be who they are and where differences are celebrated.

Teachers at Harbor are acutely aware of each child’s interests, strengths, and challenges, and they incorporate that understanding into personalized learning processes for each student. Because of this solid foundation of acceptance and love, students at Harbor are confident, self-aware, and happy–and they love to come to school!

Signature programs include a STEAM program that combines the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math into interactive, hands-on projects that enable students to learn about their world in an authentic way. The Mandarin and Spanish programs provide students with opportunities to learn global languages, explore other cultures, and enhance their perspectives through multi-cultural celebrations.

Harbor Country Day School is chartered by the New York State Board of Regents and is accredited by, and a member of, NYSAIS (NY State Association of Independent Schools).
