Service: From the Inside Out

Recognizing the needs of others and feeling a responsibility to help is at the center of Charleston Day School’s Mission. Many of our school-wide events have been the genesis of a single student who had an idea to help.

In their neighborhoods throughout the community, Charleston Day students hold lemonade stands for charity, collect trash from the roadway or help a neighbor with yard chores.

Service is not just an activity to add to your calendar. It is a way of thinking,

— Community Service Coordinator, Julie Tonks
