In-Person Learning Resources for the 2020-2021 School Year

Title Description Cost
Educational and Emotional Support
EFfective Counseling

Parents are uncertain about their child’s education this year. Students with deficits in executive functioning and social skills are impacted by distance learning, as traditional supports for academic and emotional growth are limited.

 

We provide direct instruction for grades 4-12, supporting curriculum- based concepts and executive functioning development (task initiation, organization, study skills, time management, etc.) to allow students to effectively participate in their education regardless of the learning model. Guidance regarding individualized education plans and 504 plans is available.

 

Learning challenges often come with social/emotional struggles. We deliver individual and group counseling to enhance social skills and emotional regulation.

Hamden Hall Country Day School
Hamden Hall Country Day School

Hamden Hall Country Day School is a leader in educational excellence. We employed our distance learning model, Virtual Halls Under the Pines, during the final semester of the 2019-2020 school year. We were also proud to share digital resources with non-Hamden Hall families during that time as part of our ongoing mission to provide educational opportunities to the greater community. Our 2020-2021 school year commences Sept. 1, at which time we welcome our students back to campus.

Hamden Hall is in the unique and fortunate position of owning three campuses and substantial property. As such, we will commence the 2020-2021 school year with all of our students, faculty, and staff on campus. We are excited to return to our beautiful campuses and will utilize all three of them – 1108 Whitney Avenue, 20 Davis Street, and our Skiff Street Athletic Complex – to better provide a healthy and safe environment that fosters our commitment to excellence. Through the use of all of our properties, we are able to spread our students and staff out as much as possible and reduce the overall density. The end result is a reduction in the number of students in certain classes, the creation of larger physical classrooms, and limited overall interaction with regard to campus foot traffic.

For prospective families, please note that we have many options for you to explore and learn more about what we mean by The Hamden Hall Experience. Contact our Admissions Team at 203.752.2610.

Need a space for your child to complete their digital learning? The SM&NC will have education staff-led, socially distanced classroom space for a small group of students to complete their daily online school work. In the morning, students will log on (depending on the schedule for their school) and complete assignments with some breaks for activity and a snack (student-provided). We’ll have a break for lunch and some time for free play. In the afternoon, students can have additional time for work if needed, or we’ll head outside for a hike on the trails, hang out with the animals, or participate in science and nature-based programs with SM&NC staff. The classroom will be in the Farmhouse whenever possible. If additional space is required, we may split the group (with two staff) to allow for proper distancing. Classroom will be led by a professional educator and supplemented by other SM&NC education staff. Limited enrollment available. Parents will be required to provide information on school plans and curricula, as well as participate in daily health screening questions. Students must provide their own tech.
