CCDS Welcomes Mr. Chris Stoffer
Development and Admissions Director

I had the pleasure of growing up in Canton, Ohio and experiencing all the rich heritage this area has to offer. As one of five boys, I was always active in school events and sports. After graduating from GlenOak High School, I went on to attend Malone University where I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in History and was a member of the football team. Upon graduating from college, I had the opportunity to work with middle school and high school students on the athletic field as a coach with Plain Local schools for two years. This experience lead to a position at Herzing University as an Admissions Advisor where I have worked for the last nine years, helping students reach their educational goals. I hope to bring my passion for helping and working with students to Canton Country Day to add to the already fantastic staff and legacy that has been a part of this community for many years. Currently, I reside in Canton where I am engaged to my beautiful fiancee' Desiree. We have two dogs.

I look forward to working with you and the team at Canton Country Day.
Annual Giving Fund

Please donate to the Canton Country Day School's 2017-2018 Annual Giving Campaign!

What is the Annual Giving Campaign?
The Annual Giving Campaign is made up of yearly gifts from parents, faculty and staff, the Board of Trustees, grandparents, alumni, and friends of the school. Each year is a separate drive designed to meet the operating needs of the current year. No donation is too small.

Hot Lunch Program


Please check the school calendar for any dates that your child will not be in need of a school lunch. There will be no reimbursements for any orders past the deadline date .

  • Please keep in mind when ordering and selecting your menu items for the month you must complete the ordering process.

  • Be sure to "CHECK OUT" the order and "PAY INVOICE" and finally click on "PROCEED". Only when you receive an invoice marked as "PAID" will the order be confirmed.

  • Not completing the process will result in an "UNCONFIRMED ORDER". All unconfirmed orders that pass the ordering DEADLINE DATE will not process, which will result in your child not receiving the anticipated lunch item.

The online Hot Lunch Program is only for Kindergarten through 8th grade. For those of you that have not signed up for "Hot Lunch", you can do so at https://cantoncountryday.ahotlunch.com

After you activate your account, you will need to input our school code. You are able to enter a different code for each child if necessary.

  • For sample menus: Sample Menus If you have any questions or need assistance, please go to http://support.hotlunch.com/
