Welcome to the Calgary Jewish Academy

The Calgary Jewish Academy (CJA) was founded in 1987 as a result of the amalgamation of Calgary’s first Jewish day schools: the Calgary Hebrew School (1912) and the I.L. Peretz (1927). Our faculty teaches a rigorous dual curriculum that challenges students from kindergarten through grade nine to excel academically and develop a strong sense of their identity. Our students are encouraged to explore different ideas and to put their beliefs into action — all while creating friendships and community connections that will last a lifetime.
