Academics at JA are rigorous, engaging and reflective. With the guidance and mentorship of dedicated teachers, students embark on an academic journey rooted in inquiry, classroom discussion and problem-solving.
JA students learn by thinking critically and creatively, taking action and then reflecting on their discoveries. Our interdisciplinary curriculum is designed to encourage curiosity. Our students don’t simply seek to know, but rather to understand the “why” of their learning and then apply those principles beyond the classroom.
As our students progress from elementary (K-6) to the Middle School (7-8) and the Upper School (9-12), their learning is expanded through exploration, collaboration and student-initiated projects.
Every parent wants their child to succeed. JA parents know that long-term success and well-being demand more than impressive test scores. They choose JA because our curricula and our culture go far beyond intellectual development. Students are challenged academically, but they also learn to excel socially, ethically, physically and artistically.
The core competencies of critical and creative thinking, character, courage, communication, collaboration and cultural competence ensure your child not only excels academically, but is a well-rounded, confident human being..
