At Yeshiva University High Schools, we are dedicated to preparing our students for adulthood both as knowledgeable and committed Jews and as broadly educated, intellectually curious, and caring the welfare of others, members of the general society.
The High Schools provide a challenging academic program in an atmosphere that encourages adherence to the traditional ideals and practices of Orthodox Judaism.
It is designed to motivate Torah living—striving to become ever more devoted to God, Torah learning, personal integrity and ethical behavior basic to Jewish life and participation in contemporary society.
Our commitment to Torah U'Madda requires students to pursue all academic studies with the intent of becoming more understanding of the world and its mysteries, to work hard at personal academic achievement and to maximize intellectual potential.
It is our hope that each student will seek to enrich the high school experience by involvement in co-curricular activities both at school and through communal participation.
The programs, both academic and extracurricular, reflect the primacy of Torah, as well as the importance of secular studies.

- For nearly a century, Yeshiva University High School for Boys has represented the very best in secondary Jewish education. With a primary focus on Talmud Torah in the daily Shiurim which, in the traditional yeshiva fashion, span the entire morning and in many cases, the early afternoon as well, our talmidim are taught not only to learn Torah, but to live it and indeed to love it and all it stands for. Under the caring guidance of devoted and learned Rebbeim, they are exposed to the depth and breadth of Torah, they are inspired to strive for Torah greatness themselves, and they are imbued with the values of Yiras Shomayim, of Chessed, and of mentschlichkeit. At the same time, the college preparatory program is likewise exceptional, featuring exciting and challenging courses taught by a superior faculty in a wide array of General Studies subjects, designed to engage the minds of our students, to teach them necessary skills and to help develop them into well-rounded, accomplished young men. In short, the high school at Yeshiva University carries out the institutional mission to produce outstanding graduates whose commitment to Torah informs everything in their lives, for whom notable achievement in Torah study is a life-long quest, and who are at home in all the other disciplines needed in order to be successful, engaging and contributing members of society in the contemporary world. With our long list of alumni that reads like a “Who’s Who” among Torah scholars, Jewish communal leaders and distinguished laymen, it is no wonder that over the years, many yeshiva high schools have attempted to emulate the educational model pioneered in our yeshiva. Combining the intimate and nurturing setting of an independent school with the intellectual and material resources of a world renowned yeshiva and a first-rate research university, our high school is able to offer an overall educational experience that simply cannot be matched elsewhere. From the vibrant center of our Yeshiva’s main Beis Medrash to historic Lamport Auditorium, where the echoes of the landmark Shiurim and derashos of the Rav, Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, zt”l, still resound, from the majestic two-story stained glass windows of our own Joseph Alexander Library, emblazoned with our yeshiva’s proud crest and motto, Torah Umadda, to the facilities of the famed Yeshiva University Library and the Max Stern Athletic Center, our campus community affords the qualified high school student more than just another yeshiva high school. It provides him with the chance to tap in to something bigger, to be at the center of a world famous Torah institution staffed by prominent Torah personalities, and to take his first independent steps as an adult on a journey towards living the Torah way of life which Yeshiva University stands for, as articulated by the Rav and his widely respected students who are today the leaders of our yeshiva, and as admired and revered by so many.
