  • SJCS provides an exceptional integrated education through the lens of the Jewish experience.
  • Grounded in community and an ethos of intellectual rigor, we raise our students to develop thoughtful inquiry, courageous and compassionate connection to others and a strong sense of who they are.
  • Our integrated dual curriculum of General and Judaic Studies fosters a child's intellectual, social, emotional, and spiritual development.
  • We know that confident children who possess a strong sense of identity and belonging are better prepared to challenge themselves academically, to assume leadership roles in their future communities, and to interact fully and positively in a diverse and ever-changing world.
  • SJCS is a place where kids and families thrive.
  • For over 20 years, we've guided students in building academic foundations for learning and ethical foundations for living.
