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.
