School Notes

  • A walk through the halls of the JA will immediately impress you with the creativity of our faculty and student body. At the JA, our talented teachers, take great pride in their work, and their dedication shines through every day. Our goal is to well prepare your child for a life of learning and accomplishments, while growing to appreciate the richness of their Jewish identity. We are a STEM school, combined with a focus on Jewish values and character development. We are proud of our UNIVERSITY PARTNERSHIPS with Stony Brook University, Touro Law School, and Cold Spring Harbor DNA Labs
  • We help develop  the tools your child will need, to grow into a person you will be proud of.  The Jewish Academy reaches out to and teaches every Jewish girl and boy equally. The Jewish Academy embodies a total non-judgmental acceptance of every Jew. The JA parent/student body represents an eclectic mosaic of families from across the full Jewish spectrum, weaving ever tighter, the fabric of the Jewish community. 
  • Every child in America needs 21st century knowledge and skills to succeed as effective citizens, workers and leaders in the 21st century. There is a profound gap between the knowledge and skills most students learn in school and the knowledge and skills they need in typical 21st century communities and workplaces.
  • Learning and innovation skills increasingly are being recognized as the skills that separate students who are prepared for increasingly complex life and work environments in the 21st century, and those who are not. A focus on creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration is essential to prepare students for the future.
