Support PJA

Like all independent schools, the cost of a PJA education exceeds tuition. We ask parents, grandparents, alumni, friends, and businesses to help us make up the difference. There are so many ways to show you are PJA Proud. Whether you give of your time, money or other resources, your contribution helps keep PJA going strong.

Donate! The difference between tuition and the excellent education PJA provides is approximately $2,000 per student. We urge families to make a tax-deductible donation of this amount if they are able or as much as they can.

Fundraise! PJA families help raise funds by working on our auction and in other fundraising opportunities including scrip and the annual fund.

PJA families and students participate in the Fair Share volunteer program. Fair Share hours may be earned by helping in the classroom or accompanying a class on a field trip, for example.

Matching gift! Check with your company to see if they will match your contribution to PJA.

Shop! Buy scrip every Friday and part of your purchase goes directly to PJA.

Legacy Gift! Make a legacy commitment by including PJA in your estate plan.
