We are a center for innovative learning. We are a community of vibrant traditions.
Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School is a place where students become their best selves, where families take a strong interest in their children’s development, and where academic, service and cultural pursuits are anchored in a warm, vibrant Jewish tradition. We’re delighted that you are interested in learning more about finding a place for your child and family here.

Bernard Zell welcomes Jewish families from all practices and affiliations. We are committed to accommodating families of all economic backgrounds and circumstances, offering need-based tuition assistance. The one trait all our families share is the willingness to partner with us to support their children’s education.

A Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School education is now accessible to more families than ever thanks to a significant pledge our school received from the Zell Family Foundation. This generous gift established the Zell Family Fund for Jewish Education in order to help Jewish families in Chicago who are committed to providing their children with an outstanding education shaped by Jewish values regardless of economic circumstance. In addition, the gift also provides Early Childhood families the option of enrolling their children in our full day program for a minimal fee.

If you’d like to learn more about our admissions process, we’d be happy to answer any additional questions. Email the Office of Admissions or call 773.572.1236.
