The community is unparalleled. Our children feel like PJA is another home and the staff and admin are their family.

Nadine, PJA Parent 

I really enjoyed PJA's small, discussion-based environment. PJA helped develop my critical-thinking skills and compassion for others while also encouraging me to follow my interests and think outside the box.

Gabrielle, PJA Graduate 2018 

PJA allows numerous opportunities to be a leader and “work for the world”, a skill that has allowed me to succeed in so many different and varied pursuits. PJA provided me with the foundations of leadership that continue to guide me through the rest of my life.

Anna, PJA Graduate 2018

PJA helped me to form my Jewish identity and taught me to advocate for myself. PJA gave me an excellent academic foundation and help set the groundwork for my future educational pursuits.
