Your home away from home

At SDJA we nurture the whole child in a strong, supportive community environment. Whether in the classroom, the garden, on the playground, or at our all-campus-wide weekly Shabbat, students are encouraged to grow, learn, and try. Meaningful student experiences that foster deep bonds are an integral part of life at SDJA. More than just providing excellent education, SDJA is a community gathering place where students are surrounded by peers, teachers, staff, parents, and even grandparents!
