Ten faculty members receive Cohen Excellence in Teaching Awards

Headmaster Scott Nelson often emphasizes that the faculty and staff are the School's greatest asset. Rye Country Day is positioned as an excellent school because of its commitment to hiring and retaining the best faculty and staff from around the nation and the world.

As a result of a tremendous leadership gift of $10 million to the Advancing a Tradition of Excellence campaign by the Steven and Alexandra Cohen Foundation, the School is able to award ten $10,000 grants annually to faculty members who have been nominated by their peers and selected by the administration for outstanding instruction and contributions to the School.
