Yavneh Academy

  • Yavneh Academy in Paramus, New Jersey has been a modern orthodox Yeshiva providing its students with a superior Judaic and secular education.
  • Our educational foundation is built on torah sh'bichtav, torah sh'baal peh, mitzvoth, middot, ivrit and Eretz Yisrael.
  • We believe that all future learning is dependent upon the experience of youth.
  • So, in order to ignite an excitement for learning in our children, we incorporate creative, innovative and interactive curricula and projects into the daily educational experience.
  • Yavneh faculty members are concerned with the whole child. We stretch the curiosity of each child so that he grows intellectually, socially and emotionally.
  • Computer technology, multimedia programs, informal education activities, cultural experiences and field trips all enhance the Yavneh experience.
  • Our educational program objectives are achieved through small student-teacher ratios and the involvement of parents at each step in the process.
  • We measure our success by the thousands of Yavneh graduates who are equipped with a strong background of academic skills, middot, a love of learning and readiness to meet the challenges of adolescence and beyond.
