Pewee Valley Junior Academy



Pewee Valley Junior Academy is a private K-8 School and Pre-school located in the Pewee Valley / Forest Springs Area.

PVJA offers:
  • - Small Personal Classes with a High Teacher to Student Ratio
    • Our classes are small and our teachers are available to connect with every student everyday to make sure they are achieving at their very highest ability.
  • - Safe, Caring, Child Sensitive Education that Fosters a Life Long Love for Learning

All to often students who are unique, gifted, special or just different learners get left behind or glossed over in the crowded fast paced public education system. At Pewee Valley Junior Academy we ensure that every student has the tools to not only succeed but to excel and grow to love learning no matter what their ability.
