From field trips and assemblies to holiday events and fundraisers, the Country School Parents' Association (CSPA) offers many volunteer opportunities throughout the school year that contribute toward the enrichment of our students' experience. Parents may be highly involved in planning or volunteering at school, while others with limited free time donate to our Cougar Fund to close the tuition gap each year. Whatever situation suits your family best, you are sure to find lasting friendships for you and your family.


The CSPA funds many things that benefit our students and school community as a whole. Fundraisers like our gift wrap sale, rummage sale, book fair, and annual auction impact students directly, with 100% of money raised going back to our children.
Here is just some of what our dedicated, engaged parents provide in a school year:

Interesting assemblies. On many Wednesdays throughout the year, we come together as a school to learn something new. Physics demonstrations, a capella groups, and performers of all walks of life are just some of what happens on our stage and is provided to your children at no cost to you.

School supplies for every student. At The Country School, there is no dreaded list sent to parents in August asking you to purchase specific and often hard-to-find items. The CSPA underwrites the purchase of supplies schoolwide and delivers them to each classroom so that our faculty can have a welcome package waiting for each student on the first day of school.

Holiday breakfast. This heartwarming tradition continues each year thanks to the hard work of our parents. From pancakes to table décor, the CSPA brings our students together for this wonderful annual celebration. Although only parent volunteers attend the breakfast to serve food and drinks, a holiday assembly follows right after, to which everyone is invited.

Outdoor education. Experiencing the world around us is an integral component of a Country School education. Lower School students spend plenty of time outdoors for science class, and Upper School experience sailing on the Lady Maryland and enjoy 2- to 3-night trips to outdoor schools such as Echo Hill and Camp Silver Beach.

Field trips. All of our students take grade-level excursions several times per year to interesting, age-appropriate desintations. While Kindergarteners enjoy a nature walk at Adkins Arboretum and a picnic at Tuckahoe State Park, 8th graders take in some theater in Baltimore or DC. Wherever they go, our students have fun...and particularly enjoy the bus rides!

Athletic equipment. Our 5-sport athletic program would not be possible without the CSPA. The funding of equipment and the provision of transportation, snacks, and of course cheering our students on from the sidelines and just some of the ways in which our parents bring the team sport experience to their children.


There is even more to our Parents' Association and we invite you to explore every possibility! Many hands make light work, so volunteers are critical to providing the level of enrichment our students know and deserve.
