The AJA Lower School curriculum builds on the skills learned in our Early Childhood program, enhancing our children’s creative and critical thinking abilities. Students are challenged to move deeper into the mechanics of writing, math and reading comprehension. Organizational skills are emphasized as well in order to help students become independent lifelong learners. Having obtained the basic skills necessary for reading Jewish texts, students push beyond the first layer to begin understanding the depth of Torah learning.
Our Judaic and General Studies programs are designed to teach our students how to learn by challenging them to discover their strengths, expand their understanding of the world, and deepen their connection with the Jewish people and the State of Israel. We encourage them to explore different fields of knowledge, to build strong and healthy identities, and to treasure their learning and their Jewish heritage.
