Atlanta Jewish Academy is a college preparatory, co-educational, Early Childhood - 12th Grade, independent Jewish Day School, guided by modern orthodox values and principles. We embody the ideals of community, tradition, individual development, and educational innovation. Atlanta Jewish Academy develops the whole person for college and life by fostering a love of Torah, Israel, and all Jewish people through an excellent secular and Judaic education within an inclusive, nurturing community.
At AJA Early Childhood, our children engage with the natural world, music, prayer and age-appropriate rituals, a rich variety of materials, the traditions of our ancestors, and are introduced to Hebrew.
The Lower School builds on the basic skills from Early Childhood, enhancing students' creative and critical thinking abilities. Students move deeper into the mechanics of writing, math and reading comprehension.
Our Middle School experience capitalizes on our students’ increasing ability to think abstractly. AJA encourages our students to develop complex strategies for thinking about the world in which they live.
We focus on four areas: intellectual, social-emotional, physical, and religious-spiritual. To nurture the well-rounded student, in addition to academic excellence, we promote participation in sports, fine arts, and service learning.
