Thank you for your interest in Hamden Hall Country Day School. We are proud to provide students with a wonderful educational experience, and we have been doing so since 1912! We offer an education to PreSchoolers through Grade 12.

The admissions process for our youngest applicants is geared towards measuring developmental readiness, while the admissions process in the Middle and Upper School evaluates an applicant’s commitment to a high standard of intellectual and personal growth.

Our mission of helping students develop a strong sense of personal integrity and social responsibility while offering challenging academics holds true. A school community the size of Hamden Hall’s is ideal in so many ways. It is large enough to offer a wide variety of academics and extracurricular activities, but small enough to allow and encourage students to participate and experience new things, while discovering their passions.

Please explore our website to learn more about our programs and our unique and special community. While this website will provide you with a snapshot of the many offerings of Hamden Hall, there is no replacement for a school visit. I hope that you will attend an admissions coffee or open house, or will call the admissions office to schedule a personal visit.

If you have any questions about the admissions process, please email me at or call the office at 203-752-2610. I look forward to meeting you and your family.
