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.











Our Alumni are PJA Proud!

While our students leave PJA in 8th grade, they credit their success in high school and beyond to their years spent learning here and being a part of our community. The critical thinking skills, Jewish values and ethics, rigorous academics and our focus on S.T.E.A.M. gives our students a solid foundation, and the confidence, to be successful. Even more important, we are so very proud of the contributions they make to their communities and the world.
