Since 1942, the JFH Educational Academy has provided the highest standard of care and educational opportunity for children from infants through preschool and the early grades.
JFH has continued the dedication to excellence with nationally accredited schools in Chicago, Prospect Heights, and Norridge, with a complete summer day camp program.
We’ve continued to develop an educational, curriculum-based environment where children from infant age through 6th grade can grow and develop in a stable, encouraging and nurturing environment.
All of our programs are designed to promote the child’s individual development level.
We offer Standard Achievement Testing at all grade levels and our students consistently score in the top percentile nationally.
This way, if a child is exceptional in one area, we can challenge him to go as far as he or she can and positively learn at his or her own pace.

JFH has been a wonderful place to work for the past five years. The school offers a large facility, terrific classroom resources, a comprehensive curriculum and exciting professional development opportunities for the staff. I enjoy coming to work each day and providing a warm environment for my students and families.
