Reading Seventh-day Adventist Junior Academy
began operating in 1949 at the corner of Kenhorst Boulevard and Liggett Avenue.
We are primarily supported by two Reading area churches and tuition. Currently, we have between 80-90 students that live throughout the Berks county area. Our student population is very diverse representing different social, economic, ethnic and even religious backgrounds.
Students attending our school consistently do well on standardized tests. Our small size creates a family atmosphere and allows teachers to make stronger connections with their students.
While Reading Junior Academy emphasizes academics, we are much more concerned about developing the character of our students. We believe that who you are as a person should not be defined by what you have or have become. That is why character development is so highly stressed.
One of the ways we develop our students’ character is through service. We promote and provide service opportunities through our community. Students at RJA are involved in volunteer service with Reading Hospital, Meals-on-Wheels, and a local food bank. Additionally, our students help rake leaves and clean-up yards for elderly and physically disabled families. Our students also participate in the Days of Caring promoted by the United Way of Berks County.
Because of our strong belief in providing affordable Christian education, Reading Junior Academy has one of the lowest, if not the lowest tuition rates for a private school in all of Berks County.
To sum it up, Reading Junior Academy is determined to develop leaders. Not just leaders for tomorrow, but children who can influence others today!
