Founded in 1986, the Rabbi Jacob Pressman Academy of Temple Beth Am has earned a reputation in Southern California as a warm and nurturing school that encourages each student to achieve the maximum of his/her potential, academically, socially, and spiritually.
The Pressman Academy is a learning community in which educational innovation and excellence among students, faculty, and parents are actively encouraged.
The Academy appreciates the needs and talents of all its students, and regards their shared and individual creativity as its most precious resource.
We encourage the balanced development of the whole person, valuing both intellectual growth and social and emotional development.
Toward that end, our classrooms strive to use multiple modes of teaching and expression drawing from the language arts, creative arts, math and sciences, and athletics.
