Student Empowerment

Community Day graduates scholars who are actively engaged in the world and think critically about what is going on around them, who ask about the root causes of injustices, who have the tools to act on their ideas, and who 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 Tikun Olam  (Improve the World) everyday. 

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.
