Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten at Gray Academy are the beginning of a lifelong journey of curiosity, exploration and growth. Play-based, multi-language learning, small classes and a dedicated team of experienced educators provide a warm and welcoming Jewish environment where your child will thrive.

You’re Welcome Any Wednesday!

From now through March 2024, prospective parents are invited to join us for Welcome Wednesdays – an opportunity to tour our school and explore our Junior Kindergarten* and/or Kindergarten** classrooms during a busy and exciting school day.

As we will be visiting classes in session, these visits are for adults only. But don’t worry, when you are ready to enroll, new students will have special opportunities to play and explore at Gray Academy later in the year.

Click here to book your Welcome Wednesday visit and to help us make your experience the best it can be!

Can’t make it on a Wednesday morning? Contact us, and we’ll make an alternate arrangement for you.

 * Children who will turn 3 or 4 by December 31, 2024, are eligible to enroll in Junior Kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year.

 ** Children who will turn 5 by December 31, 2024, are eligible to enroll in Kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year.
