The CCDS faculty is racially and ethnically diverse. There are 11 persons of color and 8 foreign-born faculty school-wide.
Nearly 72% of our entire Upper School faculty have advanced degrees and five faculty (school-wide) have received National Board Certification.
Our faculty works both in and out of the classroom to promote diversity within the CCDS community. One such example of our faculty working in conjunction with the greater community on diversity issues is through ACORN – the All Children OutReach Network. This group of faculty, students, and parents in our Lower School explore a wide variety of diversity and character issues by sharing a common book and hosting a related discussion group on the second Monday of every month.
A group with a similar diversity purpose was shaped several years ago by some of our Middle School teachers. Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity, SEED, is a group of faculty from all divisions who commit to meeting three hours a month to learn about equity and diversity issues. The goal of the program is to help teachers welcome and respond to every child in their classrooms and to deal with each student's sensitivity regarding complex identity matters such as race, gender, or class.
