Our Mission

Glenelg Country School cultivates a community that stimulates our students to realize their highest potential. Outstanding academic and enrichment opportunities nurture a passion for lifelong learning, personal integrity, and respect for others. 

By embracing diversity of background, culture and thought, our students are prepared to become responsible and contributing members of our global society.

The Ability To Explore

As an independent college preparatory school, Glenelg Country School has the freedom to develop curricula that provides well-rounded experiences to our students. This gives us the ability to educate the whole child, encouraging intellectual curiosity, compassion for others, and a strong ethical core.

We are proud of the diverse nature of our school, composed of children from a variety of backgrounds and accentuated by international students from around the globe. This fosters a natural world view to their education and interaction with their peers, helping to break down barriers and open minds.

Our students learn foreign languages, study planets in the observatory, excel on the fields of sport, perform at least 95 hours of community service, and entertain on the stage. Self-expression is always encouraged, and students gain confidence by seeing the rewards of just being themselves.

It is no surprise to us that 100 percent of our kids go off to college. This is a natural extension of a child raised by a community, who is taught to believe in their abilities, has strong intellectual discipline and strives for academic distinction.
