At PJA, your child will receive a well-rounded and values-based education that encourages them to become their best selves. Our rigorous academic programs foster a love of learning by focusing on both critical thinking and creativity. Each subject, lesson, experiment and field trip is treated as one part of an equation that creates a child who is curious about the world and brave enough to explore it.
