Discover 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.
