Boarding Program : Overview
Boarding school provides an excellent option to families who dont live in this area but who have a special vision for the education and
future of their children. International boarding students are supported as they refine their English skills. The Fox River Country Day
School boarding program excels in providing a loving, structured, homelike environment that promotes individual character growth and
guided independence. Students feel at home here and supported as they take part in the rigorous academic program of our Middle School.
Fox River Country Day School began in 1913 as Chicago Junior School, a boarding school for boys. Over the years, while staying true to
its mission, the schools configuration has changed. Today 90% of our students are day students. However, we proudly maintain a boarding
component with a capacity for 20 students, Grades 5-8.
