In 2019, the Bess and Paul Sigel Hebrew Academy of Greater Hartford and the Hebrew High School of New England merged to create a vibrant, cornerstone preschool-grade 12 Orthodox Jewish Day School in West Hartford, CT. The New England Jewish Academy serves students in the West Hartford, Greater New Haven, and Greater Springfield communities as well as boarders from the southern New England region. The school is generously supported by the Jewish Community Foundations of Greater Hartford, Greater New Haven, and Western Massachusetts, the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, and the Pava Tuition Initiative.

Thanks to the vision and generosity of Ann and Jeremy Pava, New England Jewish Academy will offer a transformative tuition subsidy for students from K-12.

The New England Jewish Academy is moving ahead with plans to build a new wing onto our current West Hartford campus, a space intentionally designed to serve our early childhood and elementary school learners. The proposed expansion, currently in the schematic design phase, consists of a 5,000 SF addition and interior renovation to accommodate all grades from early childhood through 12th grade.
Six new classrooms are to be built, classroom size is increasing, and a brand new secure playground is being designed for students and their families to enjoy.
