Sinai has the best mix of academics, warm environment, and Jewish education. Everyone knows my kids names, from the guard to the Principal. They have become passionate about learning and enjoy playing with their friends in their beautiful campus. I would recommend it to anyone!

I strongly reommend Jacobson Sinai Academy for students from 18 months to 8th grade. It is the perfect mix between Jewish and secular education. Sense of belonging provided by the community is great. It offers an innovative and integrated curriculum. Education is very individualized and tailored to each student. Excellent choice!
