Silverstein Hebrew Academy Jewish Day School expands children’s intellectual curiosity and capabilities.
It provides them with an engaging, challenging, and well-rounded academic program, replete with love for Jewish tradition, history, language, and values.
Each child is encouraged to live his or her life in a compassionate, Jewish way and given the building blocks to be a future leader of our community.
All students will possess the skills, motivation and discipline to achieve their full potential.
Our students will have the courage to act independently, grow spiritually, live ethically and maintain productively enriched lives.
Silverstein Hebrew Academy seeks to create a stimulating and enriching educational environment for each and every child.
The school is devoted to helping children learn socialization skills, building their self-confidence and teaching them the preliminary skills to explore and experience the world independently from their parents.
Our goal is to provide children with the early foundation and framework to prepare them for the transition to elementary school.
In addition, we seek to ignite a spark in each child to lay claim to his Jewish heritage and commit him or her to a lifetime passion for learning.
