At SDJA, we aim to serve students food that tastes good as well as
food that is good for them. We believe it is important to provide our
students with nourishing options that promote the Jewish value of
Shmirat Haguf, caring for one’s body, whenever possible and we’ve made
some exciting changes to our school lunch program to reflect that
We are always striving to improve the quality and freshness of the
food that we serve. We provide foods high in nutrient values, low in
fat and prepare what we can from scratch in
our kitchen. Every lunch ordered comes with a salad bar that features
local and organic produce whereever possible and we use a combination
of whole wheat or grains in most bread products. To create a deeper
understanding and appreciation of food, students are working in our
edible garden to help provide the school with organic produce when
possible and all food is, of course, Kosher.
We understand that our food choices make a difference and at SDJA we
seek to make the healthier decision as easy as possible for your

We are pleased to announce that we have switched our bookstore service this year to save you money on textbook purchases. Our new bookstore, powered by Swoopthat.com (founded by an SDJA alumnus), is a price comparison engine designed to find you the lowest prices on textbooks and other products. Here's how it works:
When you enter your children's courses, our new bookstore searches Amazon.com, Half.com and every other major online textbook website to find you the cheapest possible prices for all your books. The average family saves substantially on textbooks through this price comparison. Since you'll be purchasing books from various online retailers, we recommend that you buy your books as early as possible, preferably by the end of June.
Click here to go to Swoopthat.com.
In addition to textbook purchases, our new bookstore helps you sell your old books by searching the web to find you the highest buyback prices. To maximize your buyback earnings, we recommend that you sell your books shortly after finals week. This is also a good week to buy books for the coming year.
Online Buybacks: For maximum buyback earnings, use our new online buyback system - it searches the web to find you the highest buyback prices for your books.
Click here to sell your textbooks.
The new bookstore also contains a product search engine that will raise money for the senior trip to Israel. As you purchase iPods, TVs, household supplies or virtually any product through this search engine, a portion of all proceeds will be donated back to the school for the senior trip. Plus, the search engine compares prices and shows coupons for over 15 million products, so as you save money by purchasing products online, you'll also be donating money towards the senior trip!
San Diego Jewish Academy serves students from around San Diego County and offers bus service to and from school for parent convenience at an additional fee.
