Solomon Schechter Academy

  • Solomon Schechter Academy was founded in 1973 by a group of dedicated parents and community members who believed in the need for a quality Jewish day school in the region.
  • They envisioned a school where children could receive an excellent education not only in the secular disciplines but also in Jewish history, texts, religious practice and Hebrew.
  • While we embrace egalitarian Conservative Judaism in matters of religious observance, we welcome children from all Jewish backgrounds and teach respect for all Judaic views and practices.
  • The school started with only six students and this year SSA will be celebrating it's 36th anniversary.
  • Solomon Schechter Academy prepares our students for a lifetime of learning.
  • We nurture in our children a positive Jewish identity, healthy self-esteem, and a sense of responsibility for themselves and their world.
  • SSA is the educational choice for Jewish families seeking a stimulating, supportive, and enjoyable start for their children's formal schooling years.
  • The program and facilities encourage intellectual development in a secure, individualized atmosphere, which fosters the child's natural curiosity and instills pride and confidence in his or her Jewish identity.
