Virtually Explore Our Halls!

Welcome to Hamden Hall Country Day School and thank you for your interest in our PreSchool through Grade 12 community. We have been providing students with a wonderful educational experience since our opening days in 1912 as the nation's fourth country day school.

To ensure the health and safety of our school community, we are not at this time able to allow prospective families on campus. Nonetheless, we have virtual visiting opportunities and myriad other ways to help our prospective students and their families learn more about what we call, The Hamden Hall Experience.

Take A Virtual Tour

Hamden Hall is fortunate to have three beautiful campuses, and while it may not be possible to visit them in person at this time, you can still explore our halls virtually and discover the culture of possibilities that exists within our classrooms and learning spaces. You may be observing remotely but our close-knit community is evident, and we're proud that our students and faculty consider Hamden Hall their second home.
