PHILOSOPHY:
When interested, a child becomes self-motivated. Self motivation leads to becoming self-disciplined. We as a community of learners, seek to develop confident, independent and caring students with clear intellectual fortitude and a proclivity to question and explore change rather than avoid it.

DIVERSITY:
One of the strengths of the school is in the diversity of the families that make up our community; CDSA families represent a wide range of cultures, beliefs, races and ethnicities. This diversity is celebrated through regular observance on our multicultural calendar.

GOVERNANCE:
CDSA is a non-profit institution governed by an independent Board of Trustees. The Head of School is responsible for overseeing the day to day operations including admissions, hiring and evaluation of staff, curriculum and financial administration.
