The City Day Difference

City Day students in an art museum in Nantes, France

The City Day experience is like no other. We've created unique programming that has a transformative effect on students. See what makes us different!  

My child has toured Spain (twice), assessed fish populations in the Bahamas on the Shedd Aquarium's research vessel, explored aviation and robotics at Space Camp in Alabama, worked to help improve the health of the Chicago River and more, all through Chicago City Day School programs, with the guidance of their incredibly talented teachers!  What a fantastic way to learn!
