Admissions Policy

The Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy is open to all children whose family embraces the mission of the school. We welcome children into all grade levels. Prior knowledge of Hebrew is not a requirement.

The Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy considers several factors in the admissions process, including student visits and interviews, school records, teacher recommendations, and sibling enrollment.

While most students entering Kindergarten are five years old by September 1, we do accept children whose birthdays fall shortly after the cut off on a case-by-case basis.
