Academic Excellence within a strong Jewish Community

Shalom and Welcome to the Contra Costa Jewish Day School

The Contra Costa Jewish Day School is an independent community Jewish Day School located in Lafayette, California that serves families from all over the East Bay.  CCJDS promotes academic excellence through a rich curriculum of general and Judaic Studies. We offer a full-day Kindergarten through 8th grade.  We are fully accredited by CAIS and WASC.

Highly qualified and devoted teachers, small class sizes, and a culture that values learning, exemplary behavior and personal and social responsibility make CCJDS a perfect fit for families who want to see their children thrive in a nurturing Jewish community.  Our families represent a diverse community; we honor and welcome a range of religious practices, economic backgrounds, families from Israel and the former Soviet Union, and diversity of family life -- single parents, gay and lesbian parents and grandparents involved in raising their grandchildren.

We invite you to explore the CCJDS community through our website.  You are always welcome to call or email us for further information.
