Exercise your brain, explore and discover in a fun and nurturing way. Portland Jewish Academy’s Summer Discovery Program offers enriching and fun classes such as I Love Horses (real horses visit) and LEGO engineering! Write comic books based on favorite characters such as, PJA “Captain” Underpants or perform in a theater class based on the Elephant and Piggie books. Learn from talented musicians, magicians, and even a balloon artist who will teach, The World of Balloon Animals. The PJA Summer Discovery Program is taught by experienced, professional teachers who are excited to teach topics and themes they are passionate about.
Teachers incorporate STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) in the classes to teach topics and enhance learning. See the new Learning Commons, garden/greenhouse and Makerspace area. Classes spend time outside learning, playing and going on adventures, so bring your walking shoes! Spend July 2018 at PJA, perhaps taking a class to learn the basics of computer programming, chemistry or gardening; we know there is a class for you. Hope to see you this summer to broaden your thinking!
