The school’s mission is to provide the highest quality Judaic and general studies education and to establish a strong foundation for lifelong learning in a dynamic, supportive, and enriching Jewish environment.                       

The strength of the program is built upon a rigorous and comprehensive academic curriculum of science, math, social studies, Jewish studies, Hebrew language, music, art, physical education, and the use of advanced technology.
An outstanding faculty infuse students with a spirit of respect, tolerance, inclusiveness, and ethics that extend from within and beyond the classroom.                       

Immersion in the school’s dual curriculum prepares students for the rigors of academic programs at other fine schools while instilling a strong foundation and understanding of who they are as Jews.
