Come See the Magic of KBA!

Welcome! I am the Director of Admissions at Kellman Brown Academy. I am delighted to help you at this exciting time of finding the right school for your child. At Kellman Brown we are committed to delivering an outstanding general and Jewish education to every Jewish child. Our dual curriculum educates the whole child, academically, socially, and spiritually.

As a mom of 2 boys at KBA I feel like the lessons my husband and I are instilling in our sons are being reinforced every day in school. The small class sizes, individualized learning, and ethical values are just a few of the gifts that this school has to offer in our vibrant Jewish community.

My goal for your family is to make the admissions process fun, smooth, friendly, and as welcoming as possible.

Join us every Monday between 10 am and 12 pm for our open house and see what makes KBA special.

-Jennifer Sholder, Director of Enrollment x1209
