Beyond the Classroom

Throughout their time at CSS, students venture beyond the classroom to discover the greater world and their own capacities in new and exciting ways. Our curriculum is more than just core subjects. Clubs and activities ranging from music and drama to fine arts and athletics promote growth, high-quality performance and healthy competition.

Experiential Education

A CSS education is a student-centered education in which students learn by doing. Teachers generate opportunities both in- and outside of the classroom to actively engage students in the learning process. This helps them absorb and synthesize information on a deeper level and to make connections between what they learn and what is happening in the “real world.”

Leadership and Social & Emotional Learning

The CSS leadership curriculum and social and emotional learning programs are based on cutting-edge research and trends, and founded on the belief that empathy and courage are essential to overcoming challenges.

Fine & Performing Arts

Exposure to a comprehensive fine arts program at a young age encourages students to improve their observational, fine motor, teamwork and communication skills, and to develop an appreciation for aesthetics. The stage also becomes a familiar and well-loved place for CSS students to enrich their educational experience, with the complexity of performances increasing as students progress through the program.
