Student Empowerment

Community Day School graduates are scholars who are actively engaged in the world. Our students think critically, ask about the root causes of injustices, and have the tools to act on their ideas. They are empathetic, collaborative, and reflective. Through service learning, shout-outs highlighting acts of kindness, and a social-emotional learning program based on empathy and compassion, Community Day students practice the value of Tikkun Olam  (Improving the World) every day. 

As a component of every Project-Based Learning unit, students are encouraged to collaborate with local and global nonprofit organizations that focus on a range of social justice issues. We aim to serve our community partners while also working toward specific academic learning goals and providing opportunities for student reflection and lifelong action.
