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.
