Be a Part of the Community

Dr. Bruce Powell, Head of School, chats with students.

New Community Jewish High School is celebrating a decade of intellectual imagination and ethical action. A coed, 9th-12th grade college preparatory high school, NCJHS combines advanced placement academics with advanced placement kindness in a pluralistic Jewish learning environment. A New Community Jewish High School education fuses the enormous power of contemporary advances and ideas of human civilization with the sacred obligation of humans to apply that knowledge to advance moral vision and ethical action.

Our definition of “educational greatness” is not measured by standardized test scores alone. Rather, it is measured by true success in life; by how outstanding universities accept and value our graduates; by the creativity, imagination, deeds and moral actions of our students and our alumni. We teach students how to analyze, synthesize and evaluate concepts, values and knowledge. We encourage new ideas, new thinking and invention. We teach students Jewish values so that they may develop and embrace the moral courage to do the right thing.

In addition to our academic courses, our CLASSIC NCJHS programs include 26 Jaguar athletic teams in 14 sports; Israel exchange programs with three high schools in Tel Aviv, Israel; overnight grade level trips; and an All School three-night retreat; extracurricular offerings; musical theatre and drama; a Science Academy; a comprehensive college guidance program; social action and interest clubs; leadership opportunities; and bus transportation from selected areas. Attend an open house for prospective families on Sundays, November 6 and January 29, at 10:30 a.m. RSVP online at www.ncjhs.org or call the Office of Admissions at (818) 348-0048.
