School Notes

  • Educational Philosophy
  • During the nine-year span from Kindergarten through Grade 8, children deserve a relevant, rigorous and joyful academic and co-curricular program. With that in mind, three points of focus guide Austin Jewish Academy`s educational philosophy: Project Based Learning, Social Emotional Learning, and Jewish Studies.
  • Students at Austin Jewish Academy take ownership of their learning within the framework and guidance provided by our exceptional faculty. The Project Based Learning curriculum teaches students to collaboratively solve real-world problems. Teachers work together to meet individual student`s needs, so every child experiences deeper learning and develops high expectations of personal excellence. 
  • We are an inclusive community of learners, and integrate Social Emotional Learning at every level within our school culture to empower students to navigate the world in a healthy way and enable sound decision making. Students develop strong relationships with their classmates, across grade levels, and with faculty. Graduates move on to high school with character, confidence, and the ability to self-advocate.  
  • We are dedicated to inspire in our students an enduring commitment to spiritual growth and a meaningful connection to Jewish life now and for the future. As a community day school, AJA acknowledges and honors the diverse spectrum of Jewish life, instead of teaching one "right or wrong way" to practice Judaism. Learning about Judaism is also about living Jewish values and traditions, not just in the Jewish Studies classroom but as an integral part of school culture.
  • Our exceptional community of families and teachers raises our students to be today`s accomplished, innovative thinkers and tomorrow`s compassionate problem-solvers and leaders.
