Student Life at CESJDS

At CESJDS, self-discovery is an ongoing process that extends well beyond the classroom. To balance the intensity of their studies, we offer students a wide variety of opportunities in the arts, athletics, community service, and extra-curricular activities. Students are able to explore their Jewish identity and then make that learning come to life on the Senior Capstone Trips. Discover more about Student Life at CESJDS…
