New England Jewish Academy
A PreK-Grade 12 Modern Orthodox Jewish Day School
In 2019, the Bess and Paul Sigel Hebrew Academy of Greater Hartford and the Hebrew High School of New England merged to create a vibrant, cornerstone preschool-grade 12 Orthodox Jewish Day School in West Hartford, CT. The New England Jewish Academy serves students in the West Hartford, Greater New Haven, and Greater Springfield communities as well as boarders from the southern New England region. The school is generously supported by the Jewish Community Foundations of Greater Hartford, Greater New Haven, and Western Massachusetts, the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, and the Pava Tuition Initiative.
Thanks to the vision and generosity of Ann and Jeremy Pava, New England Jewish Academy will offer a transformative tuition subsidy for students from K-12. The tuition subsidy will provide an opportunity for students throughout the area to benefit from a Jewish day school that combines the highest quality education with an environment that nurtures the Jewish soul of each student.
