The NEJA Capital Campaign

About New England Jewish Academy

Building Jewish Leaders

New England Jewish Academy Capital Campaign

Building on the shoulders of giants

As a cornerstone of the Connecticut and Western Massachusetts Jewish community, the New England Jewish Academy serves as the gateway to nurturing and strengthening the future of Jewish education throughout the region.

Recent enrollment growth has been remarkable, thanks in part to our ground-breaking Pava Tuition Subsidy, which has made Torah-aligned education accessible to many more families. Additionally, our innovative Reggio Emilia Early Childhood Center has become a magnet for new parents, drawing vibrant, young families to the region and introducing them to NEJA’s holistic educational excellence.


Our ongoing $4.5 million project encompasses a 7,000-square foot expansion, extensive building renovations, and outdoor enhancements. This new wing of the building will create a seamless educational journey for students from early childhood through twelfth grade and provide students of all ages access to the full range of opportunities and resources available on our campus.


We invite you to join us and witness firsthand why our expansion is not just necessary but vital to our continued growth.

The expanded NEJA campus: A transformational engine of growth

We’ve embarked on a $4.5 million construction journey aimed at redefining educational excellence for the next wave of community leaders. A quick tour of the new NEJA campus illustrates its power as a springboard not just for individual student growth, but for the growth of the entire Jewish community. The 7000-square-foot expansion, extensive indoor renovations, and innovative outdoor assets will promote the holistic success and growth of our Jewish children for generations to come.

6 state-of-the-art classrooms

These classrooms will be equipped with the latest educational technology, providing an immersive and interactive learning environment.

Resource room and library

Our Resource Room and Library serve as hubs of knowledge and exploration within our school. In these spaces, students can access a wide array of educational materials, from books and research references to digital resources and multimedia materials.

Social worker’s office

Our dedicated Social Worker’s Office will be a confidential and supportive space where students can seek guidance and assistance when facing personal or social challenges.

New, secure playgrounds

These playgrounds will be constructed with the highest safety standards and designed to encourage physical activity, social interaction, and imaginative play.

Improving existing infrastructure

The existing infrastructure will undergo both beautification and hardening. This will include aesthetic enhancements such as landscaping and new signage, coupled with security upgrades like reinforced entry points, advanced surveillance systems, and emergency response protocols, ensuring a safe, welcoming, and secure environment for students
and staff.
