• Community
• Respect
• Integrity
• Kindness
• Repairing the World.

EPJA's tradition of providing a rich academic experience, paired with a strong sense of Jewish ethics and identity, allows our students to flourish in life!

 

OUR VISION AND VALUES

LIFE-LONG LEARNERS

Imagine a place where every child matters and creativity counts.  A life-long love of learning begins here.

INQUISITIVE THINKERS

At EPJA, we nurture each unique child in a way that fosters their naturally inquisitive minds.  They are empowered to ask questions, take risks and make thoughtful decisions.

EMOTIONALLY INTELLIGENT

Our EPJA culture fosters empathy and understanding.  We place a high value on developing self-awareness and thoughtful consideration of others' feelings and points of view.

MEANINGFUL JEWISH LIVING

In our school, children build strong Jewish identities.  Guided by the teachings of Torah, our students develop a deep sense of commitment to their heritage and a personal connection to Israel.

CARING CITIZENS

EPJA students develop a global understanding of the world they live in.  They are passionate leaders of their community and engage in actions that make a difference.

Personalized Learning

We recognize that each child is created in the image of G-d and can excel.  Using traditional teaching styles complemented by innovative and experiential learning, EPJA reaches every individual.
