Community Day School Love the learning, Live the Values 



We believe inside every child is a unique spark that ignites limitless potential


Community Day School is an independent, co-ed Jewish day school for students in Early Childhood through Grade 8, distinguished by an exceptional academic program rooted in Jewish values that inspires children to become their best selves.


We believe the very best classrooms don't always have walls


Learning by doing—harvesting garden vegetables, climbing Masada at sunrise, touring a Pittsburgh robotics start-up, organizing a Student Council conference, chasing a soccer opponent, competing in a chess tournament, practicing mindful meditation—is at the core of a CDS education.


We believe in inspiring children to find joy and meaning in a vibrant Jewish life


CDS students come from Jewish backgrounds of all types, and they are immersed in Jewish values, teachings, and experiences that build confidence in their identity and connection to the land of Israel.



We believe in empowering students with the knowledge and passion to repair our world


Community Day School graduates are resilient, compassionate, and courageous leaders and changemakers who are prepared to excel in high school and top colleges—and in life.
