NEW ENGLAND JEWISH ACADEMY
Intergrated dual curriculum
Integrated curriculum is a way to make connections between subjects and make learning more meaningful to students. Our educational model integrates Judaic study and Hebrew immersion with a challenging general studies curriculum. Each student is engaged in project based learning, team work and critical thinking. During their journey of learning and discovery at New England Jewish Academy, all students will demonstrate their mastery of subjects as well as develop and apply important life skills including effective communication, respect for others and a strong sense of social responsibility.
In order to teach all of the important subjects in an effective and comprehensive manner, New England Jewish Academy has developed a curriculum that is grade level specific and utilizes integrated themes for science, social studies, and Jewish studies. Themes change year to year to reflect the growth and interests of our students and our ever-changing world.
Infusing traditional texts with modern life experiences, NEJA students are exposed to the richness of our Jewish heritage and can apply the important lessons in meaningful ways. NEJA students add their own voices to the Jewish conversation. Their skills in text analysis and critical thinking can be applied equally to Torah study or the challenges of Western civilization and literature. Our students are prepared for the world in which they will live and lead.
