Welcome to the Calgary Jewish Academy. Thank you for taking the first step in discovering how the CJA can support the development of a strong Jewish Identity and increase the academic and leadership potential of your child.
The CJA has a century-long legacy educating children who have and will continue to shape the future of Calgary, Canada and beyond. Our philosophy is simple but effective: from Nursery through to Grade 9, we provide a safe, supportive and challenging environment. Our goal is to explore with students the concepts of Jewish community, identity as well as put Jewish values and beliefs into action. Our students are challenged in a rigorous dual curriculum, with fifty percent of their studies in Alberta Curriculum and fifty percent in Judaic Studies.
We hope you will explore our website and find out more about our enriched Curriculum and the exciting School Life at the CJA, which includes; Outdoor Camp at Grade Five, Government of Alberta Trip in Grade Six, First Nations and Judaic Studies Trip to Salt Spring Island in Grade Seven, Washington - Human Rights and Holocaust Studies Trip in Grade Eight and the culminating Grade Nine Experience to Israel.
The CJA is in the top 3% of the province academically, and we do not require an admissions exam. See our Fraser Institute report card here.
