- Things to Do
At PJA, we think for ourselves and work for the world. PJA offers a community characterized by respect and a challenging, engaging academic program. Our teachers cultivate life-long learners who think critically, independently and creatively. PJA’s unique curriculum integrates Jewish learning and values with S.T.E.A.M., (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) providing a foundation for success in high school, college and life. Our students benefit from Hebrew language learning, beginning in preschool and continuing through eighth grade, in addition to Spanish in middle school. Our alumni are leaders in Portland area high schools and are accepted into the country’s most prestigious colleges and universities.
Our Early Childhood Program provides a warm and stimulating environment where children cultivate a love of learning. Specialists teach enrichment classes including art, Hebrew, music, and library visits. In addition to our outstanding preschool, lower and middle schools, we also offer an infant/toddler program and after school enrichment. PJA students at all ages experience small classes; committed, skilled teachers; and an environment that is welcoming and open to all.
