A pluralistic day school is not affiliated with any one stream of Judaism nor is it affiliated with any synagogue. Students attending SDJA represent secular, reform, reconstructionist, conservative and modern orthodox families. All streams of Judaism and perspectives are respected and valued.
SDJA is exceptionally strong academically and offers both a secular and Judaic curriculum. Students at SDJA graduate with more credits than students at most other private schools due to the dual curriculum. SDJA offers a values-based education that strives to address the challenges of contemporary life.
Because the affordability of a Jewish day school education is a concern to many Jewish families, SDJA has developed a comprehensive tuition assistance plan. The primary goal of the program is to make a Jewish day school education available to as many students as possible. The aid is awarded solely upon the basis of need and only if the applicant follows the guidelines and timelines established.
SDJA offers a full complement of extra curricular programs and activities. Student government provides a forum for students to exercise leadership skills. There is an extensive sports program as well as music, art and drama.
SDJA had its first graduating class in 2003. They were highly successful being admitted to the country’s finest universities. The success has continued each year due, in part, to the well-rounded program, the rigor and challenge of a dual curriculum, and to the emphasis on critical thinking.
