Jewish Kids Groups is expanding to Alpharetta with its fifth location for the 2017-18 school year.

The announcement from the independent Sunday and Hebrew school came Wednesday, June 14, only eight days after JKG was recognized as one of the 50 leading innovative Jewish nonprofit organizations in North America by being included in the 2017 Slingshot Guide.

The Alpharetta location, at 11675 Haynes Bridge Road, joins sites in Brookhaven, Dunwoody and Old Fourth Ward in holding JKG’s Sunday program from Aug. 27 to May 6. JKG also has an after-school Hebrew program in Morningside.

“Expanding northward to serve more families is part of Jewish Kids Groups’ strategic plan, and we’re thrilled to have a new site in Alpharetta for fall 2017,” JKG founder and Executive Director Ana Robbins said. “There is an incredible excitement surrounding our programs, as they’re fun, enriching and accessible to families who might not belong to synagogues or other Jewish organizations.”

The Alpharetta location will enroll preschoolers through second-graders this fall, then add grades in subsequent years.

Tuition for the full school year of Sundays is $1,325.
