From the classroom to the stage, the fine and performing arts are integral to life at Charlottesville Day School. Through the Arts, students develop confidence, celebrate their successes, and come together as a school community in joyful ways. Not only are the Arts scientifically proven to help develop young minds, they provide powerful lessons in the value of perseverance and hard work.
Athletics and Physical Fitness
Physical and wellness education at CDS encompasses mind, body and spirit. Benefits include refined motor skills and articulation, increased body awareness, ability to manage stress, and increased concentration and focus. CDS students recognize the relationship between feeling good and regular physical activity, healthy food intake, and positive lifestyle choices.
In middle school, students also have an opportunity to compete on boys and girls basketball and co-ed cross country teams. CDS teaches core values of respect, responsibility, kindness, sportsmanship, perseverance, quiet confidence, leadership, integrity and honesty.
CDS Bears keep learning no matter what the circumstances are! In the event that on-campus school is suspended, we have developed a robust distance-learning platform.
