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.

We are excited to showcase our beautiful campuses and help families discover the culture of possibilities that exist in our classrooms and learning spaces. It's time to learn more about what we call, The Hamden Hall Experience.

Select An Option That's Convenient For Your Family!

Take A Virtual Tour

Hamden Hall is fortunate to have three beautiful campuses. We are happy to have you visit them in-person but if you're more comfortable visiting our halls virtually, please do so! 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.
