About

Founded in 1965, the Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School (CESJDS) is one of the largest and most prestigious K-12 Jewish day schools in North America. Creativity and confidence are the cornerstones of our school community, cultivated by our warm family atmosphere and tradition of academic excellence. Our 1,100 students flourish with the support of dedicated faculty and the opportunity to work with cutting-edge technologies. At CESJDS we prepare young men and women for active engagement in the Jewish community and leadership in American society. CESJDS is approved by the State of Maryland Department of Education and accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.

To position for a vibrant Jewish future and to continue to enhance our program, CESJDS underwent a year long process to develop a new Strategic Plan. The plan is a by-product of a collaborative process where many of our key stakeholders gave significant thought to what CESJDS will look like in three to five years. This living document will guide us as we apply our energies and resources in a meaningful way to continue to advance the institution and community.
