Planning to Visit Us?

CJA is located just north of the Eisenhower Expressway and west of Cicero Avenue in the Austin neighborhood. Whether you are arriving from the east- or west-bound Eisenhower (I-290), our school is a short drive from the expressway.  Now that our school expansion is complete, we have several on-site parking options including a lot in front of the school entrance on Jackson Blvd. as well a lot directly adjacent to the northeast corner of the school with access from Quincy Street.
