From Portland Jewish Academy

PJA is an inclusive Jewish community school providing an academically rich environment that supports each student’s social, emotional and spiritual growth. PJA’s unique curriculum combines interdisciplinary learning, community service, and foreign language acquisition – all with a values-based approach. Students have many opportunities to build relationships and collaborate throughout the school community and are encouraged to think critically, independently, and creatively.

Students benefit from the daily use of the campus facilities, which include the MJCC athletic facilities, the outdoor classrooms, gardens and playgrounds. PJA provides programs in Early Childhood (infants-preschool), Kindergarten through 8th grades, and an after-school enrichment program. PJA students of all ages experience small student-teacher ratios, committed and skilled teachers, and a community that is welcoming and open to all. At PJA, students are empowered to think for themselves and work for the world.

Every eighth grader participates in PJA’s culminating experience, the Capstone Project. This is a multifaceted, interdisciplinary project which requires students to design, implement and facilitate a meaningful service project. After completing the project, students choose a related topic, conduct research and undertake the writing of a formal research paper and oral presentation.
