CCJDS is a member of the Independent Schools of the San Francisco Bay Area (ISSFBA), a consortium of Bay Area schools that works together in an effort to make the admissions process positive and convenient for all families.  ISSFBA schools generally follow the same timeline (and deadlines) for application submission, decision notification, and enrollment confirmation.
