Rabbi David L Silver Yeshiva Academy

  • The Yeshiva Academy is a progressive, modern school that welcomes all Jewish children.
  • Our rich, challenging curriculum helps students achieve the intellectual and social skills needed to succeed in their lives and careers.
  • At the same time they gain appreciation for the values of Jewish life and are taught the tenets of good American citizenship.
  • At a time when many public schools are eliminating the arts, at The Yeshiva Academy music and arts programs continue to thrive.
  • We believe art instruction helps students build confidence, creativity and an appreciation for culture.
  • The Yeshiva Academy is one of the few schools in the nation to receive a full Cognitive Learning Systems grant, resulting in a new, fully equipped science lab and the application of an innovative teaching method, based on how children of different ages learn.
