The Extracurricular Program is a fun and important component of school life which goes beyond the regular academic and athletic activities. It is an opportunity for faculty and students to work together outside a formal classroom setting, and while it is voluntary, most students in Grades 4 through 12 participate. The School also offers After Care Programs for Junior School students. 

The CDS Extracurricular Program offers more than 40 activities for students to choose from which reflect the interests of both students and faculty.
