As part of Carmel Academy’s commitment to providing a meaningful Jewish day school experience for all children, the school offers a special education program for children with language-based learning disabilities. PALS (Providing Alternative Learning Strategies) gives children with special needs the tools to maximize their academic potential, while at the same time affording them the myriad benefits of a Jewish education. Carmel Academy provides an excellent foundation for long-term academic success, while fostering a deep love and connection to a common Jewish identity through history and culture, prayer and text, Zionism and Hebrew as a modern, living language.
