The New Community Jewish High School offers a college preparatory program for students in grades 9-12. It has 145 academic courses including: 58 electives; 5 world languages; and 14 Advanced Placement courses in Math, Science, English, History, and Languages.
The school has a global Jewish education program, exchange programs with high schools in Tel Aviv, and experiential education programs.
Numerous social action and interest clubs offer extracurricular programs for students. There are 22 competitive athletic teams.
The school was founded in 2002 with 40 students, and was originally located at the West Hills campus of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles. It outgrew the available space within two years, and relocated its campus to shared spaces at Shomrei Torah Synagogue, a Conservative synagogue in West Hills.
The school outgrew that location also (then with 400 students), and in January 2011 it purchased the entire former Jewish Federation campus where it had begun. The school reopened there, after remodeling was completed, to begin the 2013-2014 academic year.
