New England Jewish Academy Capital Campaign

A dedicated community partner: shaping our future to meet our community’s

NEJA’s strategic vision for the future includes more than physical improvement and expansion. Recent leadership changes reflect a commitment to tackling challenges, embracing opportunities, and aligning NEJA’s curriculum and culture
post-merger to best fulfill students’ needs and the community’s aspirations.

A key element of NEJA’s growth vision includes an upward climb toward impeccable academic excellence. Countless NEJA alumni have attended the choicest of colleges and accomplished significantly in high-level professions. NEJA’s
leadership is committed to continuing those phenomena and more, with the goal of elevating NEJA obvious choice for any Jewish parent seeking top-quality education for their children.
