Summer vacation ends long before the fall these days, and day schools, public schools and colleges have been celebrating the start of classes since the start of August. Examples on this page include the Sandy Spring campuses of the Epstein School, Davis Academy and Atlanta Jewish Academy, as well as Chabad at Kennesaw State University. Before the school year began, ORT Atlanta joined with volunteers from Federation Under 40 and Jewish Family & Career Services’ Volunteers in Action for its annual ORT My School service project.
