Applying to Columbus Jewish Day School

Welcome! We are thrilled you are considering our learning community!

Here is a quick summary of our admission process:

  1. Apply today. We are now accepting applications for students in grades K-5 with limited spaces available. Students applying for kindergarten must be five years of age by September 1, 2023. Applications completed by February 3, 2023 are eligible for first-round decisions which are announced on March 1, 2023. Submitting an application is only a step in our admission process and does not secure a space in a classroom.

  2. Schedule a conversation with our Dean of Institutional Advancement, Jenny Glick. Jenny will contact you once your application is submitted to set up a time for this conversation.

  3. Schedule a CJDS visit . During this in person visit, you will have the opportunity to safely see our CJDS campus, have time to meet with our faculty, and also have the chance to share some time with our Head of School.

For students applying after February 3, 2023, CJDS follows a rolling admissions process with visits and screenings arranged individually. Here are the steps to our rolling admission process:

1. Submit an application. Our Dean of Institutional Advancement, Jenny Glick will contact you once your application is submitted.
