The CJA is an inclusive community school and we foster an environment where children of all denominations and faiths are welcome. We are one of the few private schools in Calgary where no admission exam is required. In addition, we do not require bond or membership fees. The school offers a rigorous dual curriculum (Alberta Education and Judaic studies) in addition to numerous extracurricular activities, intramural sports, community experiences and leadership development opportunities.

Our dedicated faculty, enthusiastic staff, and eager students prove their successes year after year. See our Fraser Institute report card here.

As of December 2021 the CJA has been able to implement the Government of Alberta's affordability grants for facility based child care.
