From Community Day School

Community Day School is a nurturing, academically excellent Jewish day school for the 21st century. From early childhood through middle school, we inspire our students to love learning through innovative teaching methods and hands-on discovery. CDS is 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 preschool through 8th grade, they grow as people—finding their passions, embracing their Jewish identities, and preparing for successful and meaningful lives.

Community Day School is more than just an academically stellar institution...it is a place where kids' imaginations are fostered and their values are developed. My kids are receiving an education that has a moral compass, and this will allow my kids to become leaders in whatever they choose. But most importantly, CDS is a family, and for that we are grateful always.

I couldn't have chosen a better partner in helping me to raise my two daughters than Community Day School. Not only are they academically prepared for high school and beyond, thanks to CDS, they have the self-confidence, compassion, and leadership skills to make a positive difference in the world.
This is truly an amazing place! My daughter graduated with a great sense of her self and her Jewish identity and incredibly prepared academically to meet the challenges of high school.
