Transcript/School Records
Submit the request for school records to the applicant's present school. We also suggest that any Hebrew school records, if applicable, be forwarded to OJDS.

Parents are required to submit two recommendation forms to the applicant's school counselor, principal, and/or current teacher to be sent directly to OJDS. These recommendations are strictly confidential.

School Visit and interview
Applicants and their parents are required to be interviewed by the Director of Admissions. Applicants who apply during the school year should plan to visit OJDS for a school day.

Hebrew Testing
Our testing is aimed at ensuring that we accommodate each student at his or her own level, it does not determine whether or not your child may attend. 25% of OJDS's current student body have no prior Jewish day school education.

Students need to be able to read Hebrew phonetically. Comprehension is not necessary for our beginning program. Students, however, need to be able to write Hebrew script, not block letters. If students have not been taught to write the script letters in their previous Hebrew school classes, they can easily learn this skill during the summer. Each applicant is tested to determine the level of his/her Hebrew background. Testing is held prior to the opening of school.

Each application will be reviewed as soon as the admissions process is complete. Applications are considered individually by the Admissions Committee and according to available vacancies. Applicants will be notified of their status soon after completion of all admissions procedures. Students are considered for admission based on evidence of the applicant's desire and potential for success in a dual college-preparatory/Judaic Studies program. Upon acceptance, a prompt reply and return of the enrollment contract, along with a $1,000.00 enrollment deposit, are
required to reserve a student's place at OJDS. The enrollment deposit is non-refundable and is applied toward the final tuition payment of the year.

OJDS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex or age.
