Hybrid-Flex Learning

Rye Country Day’s signature academic and co-curricular experiences can be delivered in person, remotely, or as a hybrid of the two.


Hybrid-flex learning is made possible by leading-edge technology and skilled faculty. RCDS classrooms are equipped with MashMe, a digital education platform that enables integrated real-time online multimedia collaboration with many-to-many live video interactions. MashMe allows one group of students to learn in-person at school while another group participates synchronously from another location. 

To ensure continuity of learning, the Board of Trustees allocated over $2.5 million to fund leading educational technology, professional development, and safety equipment and facilities updates for the 2020-21 school year.

Ultimately, it’s the people at Rye Country Day who make the School. Although we prefer to be together in person at all times, we know we can successfully deliver on our mission through a hybrid-flex program. Out of challenge comes opportunity. My confidence in the Rye Country Day community is vast. 

Scott A. Nelson, Head of School

Classrooms have been outfitted with video and audio equipment to enable hybrid-flex learning via MashMe.

At RCDS, students learning on-campus and remotely have a seamless, synchronous, and interactive experience.
