Bruchim Ha’bayim (Welcome) from Director of Admissions
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.
When you walk into Chicago Jewish Day School, you will immediately notice that our students are happy. You will see them totally engaged, excited to be here, eager to learn. In the end, we believe that the goal of education is to create lifelong learners – a person who loves learning, knows how to ask questions, think deeply, and engage in the world around him or her.
To obtain an admissions packet, which includes an application form, you may download it here or call the school office at 773-271-2700 to request that it be mailed.
