About New England Jewish Academy

Building Jewish Leaders

Where academic excellence and Jewish passion converge

New at NEJA

Enhancing academic support and enrichment

We’re boosting our Learning Center to offer comprehensive academic support and enrichment for every student. Middle and high school students have access to math and writing support 3-4 days a week. Additionally, we’re introducing small-group Hebrew language support for all grades.

New high school engineering program

We’re thrilled to announce our new high school Engineering program, housed within the Curtis Robinson Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. This program fosters curiosity, critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity, aligning perfectly with our educational approach.

Refining curriculum for academic excellence

In our pursuit of academic excellence, we’re refining our curriculum across all grades. This not only ensures compliance with the standards set by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges but also emphasizes our commitment to self-reflection and growth as educators.

Creative arts & music program

Our school enriches every grade from early childhood to high school with art
classes led by award-winning teacher Tracy Ajello and music classes by
renowned local educator Chris Farnham. This creative approach enhances learning across all levels, fostering artistic and musical expression in our students.

Embracing innovation with blended learning

To elevate our educational offerings, NEJA is embracing the power of distance learning to connect our students with exceptional educators from beyond our local
community. Several upper division classes will have the unique opportunity to engage in real-time, interactive lessons with expert teachers via Zoom. These virtual
sessions will be complemented by an in-class teacher, ensuring a seamless and supportive learning environment.

“Students are given powerful opportunities to develop their leadership skills”

One extremely unique quality you’ll find in NEJA students is their ability to initiate and self-advocate in mature, effective ways. They’re given powerful opportunities to develop their leadership skills and apply their creativity and strengths as they run programs and communicate cogently and confidently with adults.
