Civic Spirit Schools

Civic Spirit began in 2018 as a coalition of 13 Jewish and Catholic independent schools in the New York Metropolitan area, who are committed to teaching civic virtues and building civic leadership in their educational communities.

To date, we have worked with over 30 middle and high schools across the United States in our cohort program and dozens of others through virtual symposiums and workshops. Each school draws on its own ethical and philosophical mission as a starting point for the cultivation of a renewed sense of civic responsibility.

School administrators, faculty, educators, and youth development professionals are the backbone of Civic Spirit. Through commitment and love of teaching, they create innovative ways to foster civic belonging, knowledge, and responsibility, integrating the unique assets and culture of their school and/or organization.

The dynamic Civic Spirit network ensures opportunity for educators and students to build fellowship and practice civil discourse and problem-solving across diverse demographics and systems.

If you or your school is interested in becoming a member of the Civic Spirit community, please contact: lindsay@civicspirit.org
