Dear Prospective Wornick Parents,

Thank you for considering a Wornick education for your child.

The Ronald C. Wornick Jewish Day School is an independent, coeducational program for learners in Transitional Kindergarten through 8th Grade.

A Wornick education emphasizes critical thinking, leadership and global engagement. Project based learning and exceptional teachers empower students to dig deep and form enduring understandings about their areas of study and the world around them. Intimate class sizes enable students to form meaningful personal bonds with their teachers and each other.

We are an egalitarian, pluralistic Jewish community that is open to all applicants. Wornick students learn the Hebrew language and study Judaic content from multiple perspectives in each grade.

Athletics, technology, music, visual arts and public speaking opportunities strengthen our rigorous academic program and encourage students to discover new passions.

Wornick graduates are excelling in high school and beyond. They are engaged citizens, committed to Jewish life, who value life-long learning and personal excellence. At every grade level, our challenging academic program and social emotional learning opportunities are preparing students to thrive.

I warmly invite you to experience our joyful learning community in action by scheduling a personal visit or attending one of our many events. Please contact us at admissions@wornickjds.org or 650-378-2611 to arrange a visit.
