Portrait of a CDS Grad
The first day your 3-year-old climbs out of the car seat and toddles into Community Day School, it is difficult to imagine who your child will become 11 years later when walking across the school stage, diploma in hand, as a newly minted CDS alum.
Our faculty can see the future, though. That's because these passionate educators keep a mental list of the skills and qualities that we want all of our students have upon graduation as they work hard to ignite the spark of their limitless potential and develop their talents to the fullest.
Over nearly 50 years, we have had the privilege of knowing and nurturing more than 1,000 CDS graduates in our dynamic and vibrant learning community. They've made us proud of the meaningful, committed, and impactful lives they've chosen to live.
By the time our students graduate, they are:
- Accomplished and inspired learners
- Critical thinkers
- Creative and resilient problem-solvers
- Compassionate upstanders
- Empathic leaders
- Effective communicators
- Engaged global citizens
- Confident and knowledgeable Jews
