History

Much has changed at CCDS over its more than 90 years; however, there are discernable threads in the school’s educational design that inspire and sustain all those who become a part of this community. From its inception, CCDS has been a place where academic excellence is pursued. Teachers challenge and empower children to discover and develop their interests in the arts and sciences, humanities, athletics, moral and ethical citizenship, and to participate today and in the future in arenas both local and global.

A not-to-be-overlooked component of the school’s identity is interplay between the natural beauty of its Indian Hill environs and CCDS’s progressive and modernist architecture.
