Our comprehensive programs give each child the opportunity to grow spiritually and form a lasting appreciation of our heritage and people.
The Bess and Paul Sigel Hebrew Academy is recognized as a National School of Excellence by the the U.S.

This prestigious award honors both the achievements of our students and the overall scholastic environment that promotes quality education.
Our vision for the school itself encompasses an educational community of self-respecting individuals working toward common goals in an atmosphere of civility and mutual respect.
Our objective is to provide the best curricular and extracurricular resources available, and, toward that end, we are always trying to improve ourselves by constantly engaging in honest self-evaluation and reassessment.
We believe that the child endowed with strong self-esteem that we strive to inculcate will flourish, not only personally, but also as a member of the school community, which is itself an environment we are always seeking to better and enrich.
