Admissions Process

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.

If you are already registered at the CJA you can now make monthly tuition payments to the school.  Funds will be automatically withdrawn from your account on the 1st day of every month.  If you are interested in making monthly tuition payments please fill out and return the attached form.
