Fairfield Country Day School has named its philanthropic honor society (The Bronson Society) after The Bronson Family, who did so much for the Greenfield Hill community.  In bestowing the annual Bronson Society Award, the school wishes to honor and thank individuals whose contributions have shaped our School in significant and lasting ways.

The Bronson family, whose estate has been home to FCDS for 68 years, were benevolent and involved members of the community. The Bronson name has been a part of Greenfield Hill for more than 200 years and is a rich part of our school history.   

Every fall, the Head of School and Trustees of Fairfield Country Day School recognize a member of our community — who through their dedication and support — embody the spirit of the Bronson family and FCDS and present them with the Bronson Award.
