Kadima. The Way Forward.

Early Childhood * Elementary School * Middle School

How do you raise a Jewish child? You educate her.

Kadima is a private Jewish day school in Los Angeles rooted in academic excellence and Jewish learning. The learning environment we provide encourages independence, confidence, critical thinking and a love of learning. Come see what a Kadima educational experience has to offer.


The Kadima Difference




Kadima provides an integrated General and Judaic Studies education that is comprehensive and academically challenging. The School's commitment to educational excellence and Jewish tradition teaches students to maximize their academic, social, physical, and spiritual potentials. Kadima education instills a strong sense of identity, rooted in Jewish ethics and values.

Kadima's foremost responsibility is to develop a child's intellect by inspiring a love of learning. When young minds discover the joy of new ideas, they begin to process information with enthusiasm. Student's natural curiosity and imagination meet science and logic providing a discipline that motivates them to explore important ideas by examining multiple perspectives and layered meanings. Kadima creates an environment for learning where students support and challenge each other.  




Students who know themselves on a spiritual and emotional level have an invaluable edge in our changing world. Success today means having the ability to navigate society’s complex challenges, both intellectual and moral, with dignity and strength. That’s why Kadima provides students with the tools for growth: technology and tradition, scholarship and service, art and athletics, guiding students to discover their own individual paths and connection to Judaism.

Identity & Community



We had so much fun at Kadima’s annual Skate Night, hosted by our fabulous PTO! We can’t wait for next year!


Before the Kadima basketball team started a game earlier this year, they dedicated 11 seconds of silence for the victims in Pittsburgh. Some of the girls also wore pink socks in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Thank you Coach Al Fields for coaching our children on how to be good team members on the court, in the field, and in life.



Check out this amazing performance by our students with Eli's Band from the 2018 Gala. The arts (music, visual, and performing arts) are essential to a well-rounded education, and a core part of Kadima’s curriculum. 



Each month, Kadima students explore a different value throughout their curriculum — compassion (rachmanut), leadership (manhigut), the power of speech (shmirat lashon) — as part of our year-long theme, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Students are recognized in front of their peers for exemplifying the monthly value and encouraged to live that value every day.
