- The Emery/Weiner School is an independent, college-preparatory, co-educational day school for students in grades six through twelve. Founded in 1978, The I. Weiner Jewish Secondary School began with a student population of fewer than 20 students. In 2001, the school expanded its scope with the establishment of Emery High School. With the integration of a sixth through twelfth grade curriculum, these schools were jointly renamed The Emery/Weiner School. Today, the high school is the fastest growing and largest per capita Jewish community high school in the nation. The Emery/Weiner School is an accredited member of ISAS.

- Our academic program encompasses traditional and progressive methods. For instance, we stress skills such as writing and reading, but also engage in experiential learning and regular field trips. Our approach to Judaic studies is a modern one, which seeks to make the material and the traditions relevant for each student. And our culture is one that empowers students in order to create in each a sense of responsibility not only for their school community, but for the greater community at-large. The result is a learning partnership in which students feel a sense of ownership, and, more importantly, become graduates instilled with moral self-reliance.
Most private schools have endowment funds. We explain how these work and why schools are fortunate to have them in tough times.
