Incredible Tuition Initiative



The Mesopotamians built ziggurats. The Egyptians built pyramids. The Greeks built the Parthenon. The Romans built the Colosseum. Jews built schools. That's why we're still here, still strong, and still young while all those super powers in their day have been consigned to history.

-Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

Thanks to the vision and generosity of Ann and Jeremy Pava, New England Jewish Academy now offers a transformative subsidized tuition rate for all students from kindergarten - 12th Grade.

This subsidized tuition provides an opportunity for students throughout the Metro Hartford, New Haven and West Massachusetts areas to benefit from a premier Jewish day school that combines the highest quality education with an environment that nurtures the Jewish soul of each child.

"We genuinely believe that sending children to a Jewish day school is the most important decision parents can make," said Ann and Jeremy Pava. "We know that day schools immerse entire families in exploring our tradition and sacred values and enables a knowledge and understanding of Judaism that can never be replicated anywhere."

  • Grades K-1: $5000 (subsidy of $10,000 off the regular $15,000 tuition)
  • Grades 2-5: $7500 (subsidy of $7500 off the regular $15,000 tuition)

Mission Statement

Remarkable Tuition Initiative

The New England Jewish Academy is the merged product of two storied institutions with a rich legacy in the Central New England area.

The Hebrew Academy of Greater Hartford was founded in 1940. Its legacy has impacted many generations of families and has become an integral and proud part of the Jewish community in the area.

The Hebrew High School of New England was created to fill the need for an Orthodox high school in this region and first opened its doors in 1996. Since then, it has become a standard of academic excellence in Judaic and General Studies.

HHNE and the Hebrew Academy move forward to the next chapter in their history as the New England Jewish Academy, a preschool - 12th grade Orthodox day school that will help ensure the growth and vitality of the Jewish community in the area.

Mission Statement

The New England Jewish Academy Mission Statement
The New England Jewish Academy is a co-educational Nursery-12 Orthodox Jewish Day School serving Connecticut and Western Massachusetts.

Drawing from all segments of the Jewish community, the New England Jewish Academy prepares its students to think critically and creatively, to conduct themselves in accord with the highest ethical standards of our tradition and to live an engaged Jewish life in the wider world. We inspire our students to strengthen their commitment to our rich heritage and to fortify their bond with the Jewish people and Israel while recognizing their responsibility to American society and the global community. In an enriched and rigorous academic environment, we encourage exploration of Judaic and General studies through an individualized educational philosophy dedicated to developing each student's knowledge, confidence, and ability. 


  • Jewish Commitment: We inspire students to love Torah and Mitzvot, to cultivate a deep commitment to the Jewish community, and to develop a confident, knowledgeable Jewish identity.
  • Academic Growth: Using a highly individualized approach, we help each student reach his or her academic potential in both general and Jewish studies, striving to discover the optimal intellectual challenge for every child.
  • Derech Eretz: We nurture students to treat all people with dignity, respect, kindness and empathy.
  • Engagement with the World: We teach students to engage with the world around them as responsible citizens and in an open, productive manner that brings about a Kiddush Hashem (sanctification of God's name).
  • Chessed: We encourage students to give freely of themselves to make the world a better place and to internalize the character of gemilut chessed (kindness) as an essential aspect of their Jewish identity.
  • Israel: We help students form deep and abiding connections to the Jewish homeland.
