Atlanta Jewish Academy celebrated the opening of the $9 million, 19,000-square-foot addition to its Northland Drive campus in Sandy Springs with a ribbon cutting and the Jaguar Games on Sunday, Nov. 12.
The building for the Upper School opened to students in late October, a couple of months into the 2017-18 school year.
It’s the first year that the entire school, from early childhood through 12th grade, has been on one campus since AJA formed in 2014 through the merger of Greenfield Hebrew Academy in Sandy Springs and Yeshiva Atlanta High School in Doraville.
The building features three state-of-the-art science labs, a beit midrash and a student commons with breakout rooms for study sessions. Outside, the new Upper School features a separate entrance and parking lot, as well as a regulation soccer field.
