After nearly a decade-long initiative to raise funds for an endowment that includes our new building of Ida Crown Jewish Academy, Esformes Family Campus, we are thrilled to be planning our move to Skokie in January 2016. We are now located at 8233 Central Park Ave.

The new campus includes:

  • 91,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility
  • 9,000 sq. ft. gym with bleachers that hold 400 people. Space to hold community events, basketball games and wrestling meets
  • 1500 sq. ft. wrestling gym
  • 4 science labs for biology, chemistry and physics
  • Outdoor learning area
  • Soccer field
  • Outdoor running track
  • Additional classrooms
  • 4000 sq ft. learning commons and cafeteria, a place for students to congregate and study
  • Student and staff meeting areas

For a tour of the building, contact Jane Best, Project Campaign Director.

Thank You to Our Generous Capital Campaign Donors
