Summer Programming

Summer programming is a vital component of the school year at CJA. All incoming 3rd-grade and rising 4th through 8th-grade students attend CJA for a five-week summer term.


For many of our rising 7th and 8th-grade students, CJA partners with outside academic and enrichment programs to offer camp opportunities throughout the summer term. These outside opportunities include programs like Northwestern University’s Center for Talent Development, Dominican University’s Summer Literacy Academy and High Jump. In addition, some students attend summer camps like Camp Moosilauke in New Hampshire, Camp Tecumseh in Indiana and Red Arrow Camp in Wisconsin.
