Meet Our Team

At the Jewish Academy, we deeply value professional, respectful, and responsive communication. We ask that our parents email our staff without hesitation. We are here to serve you, your children, and our community. Our school wide policy is that staff members must respond to emails within 24 hours of initial contact.
