Community Day School Love the learning, Live the Values 

Our Mission

Student with Globe

To deliver a joyful, innovative education that empowers our children to become accomplished learners and compassionate upstanders who are committed to Jewish life and to creating a better world.

Core Values


Community Day School is a nurturing, academically excellent Jewish day school for the 21st century. We are a welcoming community where Pittsburgh families who span the spectrum of Jewish belief and practice can learn and connect along with their children. As our students grow in knowledge from Early Childhood through 8th Grade, they grow as people—finding their passions, embracing their Jewish identities, and preparing for successful and meaningful lives

We act in accordance with Jewish values and are committed to:

Torah (Learning): Providing quality education to as many Jewish children as possible
Avodah (Prayer): Helping our children discover their own spirituality and relationship with God through ritual
Gemilut Hasadim: Acts of loving kindness and ethical teachings
Tikkun Olam: Repairing the world
Derech Eretz (Manners – the way of the land): Respecting others  
Menschlichkeit: Being a person of good character
K’lal Yisrael (People of Israel): Connecting with the Jewish people, the state of Israel, and our inclusive community
