Why Jewish Day School?

Federation CJA is committed to ensure that our children have access to excellent Jewish day school options.

Jewish day schools have long been a source of pride, as well as a defining characteristic of the Montreal Jewish community. Montreal’s Jewish Day Schools strive to deliver an education that is excellent, sustainable, affordable and accessible to our community and one which meets the twin challenges of providing students with a pathway to Jewish life and the foundation to thrive in Quebec and modern society. Collectively, our schools reflect the unique Montreal Jewish mosaic with its full range of philosophies, beliefs, and practices and welcome students from across the spectrum.

The curricular and pedagogical framework is in conformity with the norms and requirements of the Quebec Ministry of Education, while providing many opportunities for expanded and enriched programming and activities. The successful graduate of a Montreal Jewish Day School is excited about being Jewish, is committed to Israel, has internalized Jewish values, has the language skills to live and work in Quebec, has acquired a sound knowledge base in all academic areas, and has developed critical thinking and sound decision making skills to take his or her place in the world by translating ethical knowledge into ethical behavior.
