Thank you for your interest in San Diego Jewish Academy!


For over 36 years, SDJA has been a premier independent Jewish day school educating students (and their families!) to reach their fullest potential. Through close attention to each student’s learning profile, our children develop and grow in a rigorous academic environment that focuses on the whole child. Students benefit from experiencing joy in their learning and in being part of a supportive social and emotional environment that prepares them well for college and beyond.

Our school has a deeply engaging curriculum, giving students a strong foundation in both core academics and in Jewish literacy. Faculty members are chosen for their mastery of teaching and their love of students. They continue to evolve here at SDJA, incorporating innovative and creative teaching in their classrooms. In this environment, students become critical thinkers, confident in their abilities and encouraged to develop their own talents and passions for changing the world. Simply put, our graduates are future focused.

We know that choosing the right school for your child is among the most important decisions you can make. An education at San Diego Jewish Academy is an investment in your child’s future.

The SDJA Admissions office is here to assist you as you make that decision and support you throughout the application process.

Welcome! We look forward to sharing SDJA with you, your child and your family.
