An Independent Day School for Grades 6-12

Community Engagement

What do I have to offer my community?

Crystal’s Human Development curriculum guides students toward meaningful engagement with our community. Whether we are serving hot meals to the homeless, advocating for disability rights through an online blog, or bringing garden vegetables to our local food bank, the HD program allows for critical understanding of issues, personal reflection, and identity development through authentic community engagement.
