Day school education plays a pivotal role in nurturing a deep Jewish identity in our children and research reveals that it’s one of the most significant guarantors of Jewish continuity. As such, Jewish day school is a critical part of ensuring a strong Jewish future – our Federation’s top priority. The greater Atlanta area is fortunate to have several excellent Jewish day schools serving children from kindergarten through high school, and Federation is proud to support seven of these schools. Nearly 2,100 children in Atlanta attend one of the seven Federation affiliated day schools.
Last year, Federation provided close to $1.4 million in financial assistance to children attending these day schools. In addition to providing a strong foundation for Jewish learning, all of Federation’s affiliated day schools provide the highest quality of the academics and enrichment activities.
