Head of School Letter

Welcome to the CCJDS! Giving your child an inspiring independent school experience enriched with Jewish learning and community is a true gift. Our students engage in a rigorous academic program that cultivates their individual gifts and promotes their socio-emotional well-being. They practice core Jewish values like kindness, social responsibility and respect for others.

As a Community Day School, we welcome diversity and emphasize inclusion. Geographically, our students live throughout Contra Costa and Alameda County and originate from The Bay Area, Israel, Europe, Eastern Europe, and South and Central America. We are united by our shared goal of providing our children an excellent academic, whole child experience within a nurturing Jewish environment.

CCJDS students succeed here and beyond, prepared with a strong academic foundation and a moral compass to navigate life’s challenges. Our graduates place into the most competitive public and private high schools and make meaningful contributions both in and out of the classroom.
