Stern Hebrew High School

Tel: (215)725-3800
The Stern Hebrew High School seeks to inspire students with the blend of academic excellence, intellectual curiosity and religious depth that only a Centrist Orthodox day school at its best can provide.
For four years we have an opportunity to take young adults, so filled with passion and insight, so in need of guidance and stability, and give them the tools and vision that will help them become the motivated Jews and Americans of the future.
It is also our aim to help parents raise children committed to tradition and through that commitment guide them to becoming knowledgeable and thought full adults, able to share in both their people's mission and mankind's destiny.
The central goal of a school is to help students learn how to use their minds well.
Our school has a second goal that complements and transcends this first goal: the development of young men and women who will become fully committed to a lifestyle of Torah, as transmitted through the Mesorah.
We believe that these goals can only be realized through fostering commitment to Torah ideally inspires a desire to know the dimensions of G-d's creations, a need to seek truth.
In this sense our dedication to the investigation of the sciences and humanities is a fulfillment of the Torah imperative to become full human beings, the B'nai and B'not Torah of the future.
Thus, our academic program in both Judaic and secular studies seeks to provide our students with an environment conducive to scholarship, intellectual curiosity, love of learning, and creativity.
