School Notes:

Akiva provides an exceptional education in science, math, social studies, literature, language arts, Judaic studies, and Hebrew language built on rigorous standards, dedicated faculty, and a small student to teacher ratio. 

We also understand the importance of the arts, physical education, and community service in the growth and development of children.  Our students are taught by specialists in their field and classroom teachers integrate these important subjects into classroom projects.

As a community day school, our students come from all branches of Judaism and from families with a wide range of Jewish backgrounds and religious practices. We are a community that welcomes all.


Choosing a school is an important decision, one that deserves time and consideration. The best way to get to know Akiva is to visit us. We invite you to meet our enthusiastic teachers, witness our dynamic classrooms, and immerse yourself in the life of our school - feel the joy of learning that our students experience every day.
