Lessons in community service are abundant at CDS
As active participants in serving the needs of others, students learn about the world around them and develop civic responsibility, empathy and self-worth. That is why lessons in community service are abundant at The Country Day School.
By giving of their time, ideas and even their allowance, students learn that they can make a difference in their community and across the world as well. Students jump rope for Heart and Stroke, run for Terry Fox, work with international communities in developing countries through Free the Children, plant trees, and collect food and toys for those in our community, just to name a few activities.
Naturally, every service initiative is helped made possible by our caring and capable faculty, as seen in their leadership, mentoring and encouragement. At CDS, we view community service as an essential component of every child’s education and a way to nurture civic responsibility.
