Admissions During Social Distancing

After completing a very successful Distance Learning program in the Spring of 2020, we are thrilled to have our students back on campus and learning through in-person instruction. We understand that not all families are ready to step back into the classroom. For families seeking an alternative, robust educational opportunity, we offer our adaptive learning program.  Whichever learning model suits your family's needs, our Admissions Office is happy to speak with you and share all that a Community Day School education offers our students.
Please complete our online inquiry form to get started.

Visiting Campus

Community Day School takes the health of our school community very seriously. As a means of controlling variables relative to the pandemic, we are continuing to limit visitation of the campus. In-person tours are available by appointment and require pre-registration of all participants. Please use the links below to register for a scheduled session.

The Admission Team is also available virtually. Please submit an inquiry form and our Admissions team would be happy to contact you to arrange an introductory call.
Visit our Reopening Plan to learn more about the steps we have taken to promote the health and well-being of our CDS family. 

Campus Tour and Information Sessions

Due to the public health protection measures we have in place to safeguard our school community, in person campus tours are available only when students are not present on campus.  Each session is limited to 6 participants, including children.  Attendees will be health screened prior to entering the building.

Community Day School is what you want your children's learning experience to be. It's what you wanted your own learning experience to be. It's hands-on, it's project-based, it integrates stages and grade-levels seamlessly. The kids all play and interact with each other. Global citizenship is the standard. There is a garden, there are chickens, they spend time outdoors. My kids don't want to leave at the end of the day. Community Day is the standard for a gold-star education.
