From Portland Jewish Academy:

Portland Jewish Academy shares a building and campus with the Mittleman Jewish Community Center. As a result, PJA has access to spaces many schools may not have.

Portland Jewish Academy was established on the premise that the community needed a Jewish community day school with a truly superior academic education, built on years of Jewish tradition and values, but representative of the whole Jewish community. More than ever this holds true today. Academically, PJA is a power house. Our graduates are proof of this, from their performance in the areas best high schools to their acceptance at prestigious colleges and universities from across the country. Our students, parents and staff represent the diversity of Portland’s Jewish and non-Jewish community and are inclusive of all family types.

We are all proud to be part of the PJA community.

Please come tour the school and see for yourself why we are so excited about PJA. Call Inge Hoogerhuis, Admission Director, at 503.535.3599. She will happily assist you in setting up a personal tour.
