HANC

  • The Hebrew Academy of Nassau County (HANC) educates boys and girls from nursery through high school throughout Long Island by providing a high quality and thorough curriculum rooted in Torah (religious studies) and mada (general studies), based in academic excellence.
  • HANC provides a dynamic, Orthodox Jewish education that fosters intellectual and spiritual understanding and love of Torah, and commitment to its mitzvot and values.
  • An emphasis on midot tovot (good character) infuses all aspects of school life.
  • HANC provides a challenging curriculum in general studies according to the highest educational standards as a complement to, and enhancement of, Torah study.
  • By creating a climate of active intellectual inquiry in both disciplines, HANC encourages exploration and understanding of the world.
  • HANC emphasizes the responsibility of each Jew toward G-d and all people.
  • HANC instills in its students Ahavat Yisrael-love of Israel--as embracing the Land and State of Israel, and fellow Jews.
  • HANC inculcates in its students the ideals of the American democratic heritage of freedom, justice and human dignity.
  • HANC, in keeping with its long-standing goal of "chanoch lana'ar al pi darkho" (teach a child according to his abilities), provides a stimulating education for students with differing levels of academic ability and from differing backgrounds according to the various individual needs of the students.
  • HANC partners with parents to nurture each student to develop as an entire person.
  • By providing diverse academic and extracurricular programs, HANC enables and encourages students to discover and excel in fields in which they can lead meaningful lives.
