Portland Jewish Academy is a beneficiary agency of the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland and is proud of our partnership with them in strengthening our local Jewish community as well as the global community.











PJA Proud

Portland Jewish Academy was founded in 1961 on the premise that the community needed a Jewish community day school that would provide an excellent academic education built on Jewish values. Sixty years later, PJA continues to build on that foundational goal. 

Serving families from all backgrounds, PJA provides an academically rich environment that supports each student’s social, emotional, and spiritual growth. We offer a values-based education where students are empowered to think for themselves and work for the world. 

"PJA helped me develop a worldview beyond the classroom and instilled a sense of personal responsibility to others."

Emma Rosenthal, Class of 2012
