תודה רבה for your interest in joining the growing OJCS family; we are always excited to welcome new students and their families!  

The Ottawa Jewish Community School prides itself on having a clear mission and vision guided by our “North Stars”.  We are committed to providing the highest-level secular and Jewish educational experiences, within a community context where our students can thrive.

Please take the time to review and, complete the online registration form.  Once the admissions department has a chance to review the application thoroughly, you will receive a response. If your child gains admission, you will then be led through the enrolment process. Please note, there are some circumstances where a student’s needs extend beyond what can be offered, even with planful supports and accommodations. Determination of admission is decided on a child- by-child basis. We appreciate your time and patience with our admissions process. 

Support from our Federation

Did you know The Jewish Federation of Ottawa is a major funder of Jewish day school education?  Federation subsidizes a significant portion of daily operational costs (approximately 20% of your annual tuition, nearly $3500 per student) ensuring that Jewish education remains accessible to families in our community.  Todah JFO!
