Creating a new home for STEM education at Charlottesville Day School
At Charlottesville Day School, we believe that the teaching of science and math is an art form. Our teachers nurture and encourage their students’ natural curiosity, testing beliefs and exploring paths of scientific inquiry wherever they may lead.
From advances in technology to vaccines to climate change, science permeates every aspect of our lives. We owe it to our students to make significant investments in teaching STEM subjects in ways that are inspiring and meaningful. With our recently acquired building, we are creating a dedicated space for science, engineering and math where children can learn to solve problems and develop the skills they will need in the future to create a better world.
The purchase of a building adjacent to the CDS campus allows us to create a new facility dedicated to science, technology, engineering and math. A summary of the CDS campus history is here.
Our new building will help elevate our STEM program and create ripple effects that benefit the entire school and surrounding community. The Art of Science Campaign seeks to raise $1.2 million to offset project costs of more than $2.1 million. The campaign supports the following initiatives:
“With scientific advances playing ever-growing roles in practically every aspect of our lives, ranging from the personal in terms of the food we eat to the global in terms of slowing climate change, engaging with science in order to make good decisions as adults is critical.”
— Robert H. Tai, associate professor of education at the University of Virginia
