Bruchim ha’bayim (welcome) to our virtual admissions office. Our campus is closed, but we welcome your inquiry and virtual visit!

Thank you for your interest in Chicago Jewish Day School, particularly during this challenging time. While we wish we could meet in person to answer your questions and offer you a tour of our beautiful campus and classrooms, we hope our website and videos provide a helpful glimpse into the value of a CJDS education.

CJDS faculty and staff have shown tremendous leadership, innovation, and grace in order to make the transition from classroom to eLearning as seamless as possible. While teaching on a virtual platform, our talented educators maintain creative, individualized, interactive learning, despite the distance between us all. To learn more about the successes of our eLearning, please watch the video below.

At Chicago Jewish Day School, children are inspired by a progressive and fully integrated academic curriculum that uses Judaism to inform and enhance the quality of the education. We educate the whole child, recognizing that social emotional growth builds academic strength and overall success. We understand that your child is an individual with specific interests, strengths, and challenges that are unique to them.

Our teachers capitalize on what makes your child great and, through our commitment to small class sizes and our choice of curricula, differentiate based on who your child is.

During these unprecedented times, an in person tour is not possible, but a virtual one is. Watch our 2019-2020 school video to better understand what our school values.

Please contact me to set up a phone or virtual meeting. It is never too early to learn more about what makes Chicago Jewish Day School simply extraordinary.
