Welcome to CCJDS


Where inspiration roams the halls. Where children are encouraged to be bold and make leaps that lead to deeper understanding. Where they work together to make the world a better place. Discover a school where kindness, respect and compassion infuse everyday life. Where academic excellence is just the beginning.

Discover a school where learning happens behind home plate and behind the microscope. Where small group study gives way to big ideas. Discover a school where young minds are challenged and nourished. Where algebra and art, critical thinking and composition, technology and Torah enlighten and inform.

Discover a school where dedicated teachers share their passions, guide their students and send them aloft, wings spread. Where friendships flourish, leadership empowers and team spirit thrives. Discover a school where children grow into their identities, connect to their heritage and practice social responsibility. Where they become citizens of the world.

Discover the difference. Discover CCJDS.
