Admissions decisions are based on the screening of the child and interviews with the family to determine the child’s academic and social readiness.  In evaluating children for admission to any grade, the school considers the child’s strengths, needs, personality, and learning style in relation to the needs and functioning of the class as a whole.

Children entering Kindergarten should turn five years of age before September 1 of their Kindergarten year.

The decision to admit children with learning or other differences is dependent on whether the school can provide the help the child needs to succeed without diminishing the quality of the educational program or the classroom interactions. A family’s recognition of their child’s issues and their willingness to work with the school toward their resolution are critical factors in the admissions decision.

The Contra Costa Jewish Day School welcomes qualified applicants with a variety of talents, interests and perspectives.  CCJDS does not discriminate based on race, color, national origin, sex, religion, sexual orientation or physical disability in the admission of students or the employment of staff, nor does it tolerate sexual harassment.
