Yavneh Academy in Paramus, New Jersey has been a modern orthodox Yeshiva providing its students with a superior Judaic and secular education.
Our educational foundation is built on torah sh'bichtav, torah sh'baal peh, mitzvoth, middot, ivrit and Eretz Yisrael.
We believe that all future learning is dependent upon the experience of youth.
So, in order to ignite an excitement for learning in our children, we incorporate creative, innovative and interactive curricula and projects into the daily educational experience.
Yavneh faculty members are concerned with the whole child.
We stretch the curiosity of each child so that he grows intellectually, socially and emotionally.
Computer technology, multimedia programs, informal education activities, cultural experiences and field trips all enhance the Yavneh experience.
Our educational program objectives are achieved through small student-teacher ratios and the involvement of parents at each step in the process.
We measure our success by the thousands of Yavneh graduates who are equipped with a strong background of academic skills, middot, a love of learning and readiness to meet the challenges of adolescence and beyond.
