The Middle School elective program encourages our students to pursue interests and passions beyond the core curriculum. Students are required to take an elective each trimester. Students may choose to stay in one elective for the entirety of the school year, or choose to experience different electives over the course of the year.

CCJDS offers a variety of electives each year, some are offered each year and others are provided based on student interest. Some of the elective classes that have been offered in the past include:

  • Performing Arts

Spanish is offered every year is scheduled at a time that does not conflict with most other elective choices. Spanish students also take one of the electives above.
