The mission of Greenfield Hebrew Academy is to provide students an outstanding day school education, integrating Judaic and general studies in a vibrant curriculum that is both challenging and stimulating.
We nurture within each student respect for the individual, commitment to Judaism, devotion to Israel, passion for learning, appreciation for American ideals and dedication to the Jewish community.
The religious practices of our student body reflect the breadth of Atlanta's Jewish communities.
We believe in the importance of having an inclusive student body that is a composite of synagogue affiliations, religious traditions and socioeconomic levels.
In our school we follow modern orthodox practices and tradition, and are respectful of the uniqueness of our GHA families and the choices they have made in Judaism.
