About Us

Welcome

An Inclusive Family Community
Donna Klein Jewish Academy is a diverse and close-knit community of families across the spectrum of Jewish denominations with a common commitment to Jewish identity, heritage and values. The school is located within the vibrant, 100-acre campus of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County. The largest Jewish campus in the country, concern for safety is paramount with 24-hour security.
Students thrive in a nurturing environment where everyone knows and supports one another. New students make friends easily. The traditional and contemporary not only co-exist but complement each other on a campus where a strong sense of community and deep respect for diversity buoys spirits and keeps the focus on education. Daily life revolves around family-centered values and the celebration of traditions among the generations: L’Dor V'dor, Shabbat, Tefillah, lifecycle ceremonies, cultural performances and community service. Parents are welcomed partners in their child’s education and faculty provides a watchful continuum of care between school and home. The DKJA family comes together as one, in a culture of intellectual honesty, kindness and tikkun olam — the commitment to social action and pursuit of social justice — that translates to the larger world.
