Description

In 2001, a visionary group of leaders in Chicago set out to create a new high school that would combine the very best of the humanities, sciences, fine arts and Jewish studies together. They envisioned a place where students attending day schools could continue their Jewish education during the years that have the greatest impact on their Jewish identity. These leaders foresaw a place where public school students entering high school could deepen their understanding and appreciation of their Jewish heritage.
 Since the beginning, CJHS has earned a national reputation for its commitment to academic excellence. Every year, more Chicago-area families are discovering how CJHS’ outstanding faculty, integrated general and Judaic studies curriculum, vibrant community and exciting student life provides Jewish high school students with a unique opportunity to achieve their full potential.
