The Chicago City Day School is an independent, coeducational, urban elementary school serving children in junior kindergarten through eighth grade. The School sees as its mission the preparation of students intellectually, socially, emotionally, and aesthetically to participate in a changing and increasingly complex society.
The School develops each child’s intellectual abilities in a nurturing environment. To this end we offer an academically challenging program in a cooperative school climate in which children are encouraged to take risks.
Our purpose is to prepare students to achieve academically at a level which is commensurate with their abilities. Through traditional curriculum we seek to enable students to be successful in high school and beyond. Through active, positive, and mutually respectful interaction among their peers and with their teachers both in and out of the classroom, our students will be prepared for active, positive participation as members of society.
