Welcome to Donna Klein Jewish Academy!
As the Director of Admissions, I would like to extend a warm welcome and thank you for your interest in our extraordinary community of learners working collaboratively toward the pursuit of excellence. While soon entering our fourth decade as a school, we reflect on our history of great success and are thrilled about what our future holds. We value bringing diversity and new perspectives to the school and invite you to visit DKJA.

DKJA is a learning community committed to educating the whole child.  Through the core values of honor, respect, wisdom and compassion, we prepare students to be lifelong learners.  We inspire our children to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually while valuing each student every day. It is our goal to create an environment where students are nurtured through creativity, collaboration and critical thinking.

Our Kindergarten through 12th grade curriculum provides the core foundation for students to excel in High School and attend the finest colleges and universities. Our faculty, dual curriculum, and student life experiences inspire students to accomplish goals and assume leadership roles as they grow. We invite you to take a personal tour and experience DKJA with the Admissions Team.

While our website is a terrific source of information, the best way to get to know DKJA is to visit. Join us on a tour to see our students learning in a vibrant and innovative environment in our classrooms, labs and studios. Our students are challenged and exposed to new ideas, technology and hands-on interactive experiences.

On behalf of the Admissions Team, I would like to invite you to visit and tour our beautiful campus. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you througout the admissions process.

Admissions Policies

Donna Klein Jewish Academy seeks and accepts those students who can benefit from an academically rigorous dual curriculum consisting of general and Judaic Studies. As part of the admissions process, students are given admission testing to determine developmental readiness and academic achievement. Testing for grades Kindergarten through Grade 5 is done on-site at DKJA. Students applying to Grades 6-12 must register and take the Secondary School Admission Test. More information about dates and test sites for the SSAT is available on their website,

In addition to admission testing, DKJA requires the student’s records as well as recommendation forms from current teachers, which will indicate how the child has been performing at his/her current or previous school(s).

Kindergarten applicants attend a Kindergarten group activity program. Applicants to Grades 1-12 also spend time in the classroom with our classroom teachers during a day visit to the school. Applicants to Grades 6-12 are interviewed by an Administrator during their day visit.
