Today the American public education is based upon principals of repetition and memorization. At The Jewish Academy we believe that a child does his or her best learning when thinking, creating, innovating, and participating in real projects. Our teachers strive to make the classroom come alive, and inspire their students to enjoy every precious moment of learning. Our learning extends beyond the classroom with visual lessons and experiential trips abroad. We approach every student as an individual within our learning community.  We view educational data as a key performance indicator, and helpful to inform instruction, yet it is not the purpose of classroom learning. At TJA we believe that it is essential for students to learn to leverage technology in order to gain the skills to compete in the global economy.
