Character Virtues

The CCDS motto is virtutis laus in actione, in praise of virtue in action. We believe that such virtue must permeate every facet of school life, from classroom to darkroom, from hallway to field. We place such high value on our five character virtues that they are posted in nearly every room. They drive our code of conduct and set the tone for our everyday interactions.

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Integrity
  • Compassion
  • Courage

The School's Code of Conduct guides each member of our community to:

  • Respect the dignity of each individual
  • Treat others with kindness
  • Be honest
  • Share with those in need
  • Encourage intellectual curiosity
  • Care for the environment and property
  • Have the courage to do the right thing
