Founded in 2001, Contra Costa Jewish Day School (CCJDS) is an outstanding Kindergarten through 8th grade independent school serving families from all backgrounds. We believe in the whole child approach to learning -- fostering the intellectual, physical and spiritual growth of our students. We are committed to providing our students with extraordinary teachers, small classes, and a vibrant, supportive environment where they develop into a critical thinkers and effective communicators -- and love school! Our students practice the core Jewish values of kindness, community service, justice and respect for others and we integrate community service into the life of our school family in keeping with our Jewish commitment to making the world a better place (tikkun olam). Our strong academic program supports asking questions, connecting ideas and solving problems across all subjects.
As a community Jewish Day School, we are guided by Torah and the traditions of Judaism and we seek to deepen connections between CCJDS, the Jewish community and Israel, fostering on-going engagement that emphasizes shared values and outlooks. We represent the unity of the Jewish people amidst the diversity of Jewish life and seek to enrich our diverse Jewish community for generations to come.
