  • A Place to Thrive

    Our school is a place of kedusha - a space devoted to limud HaTorah; the study of Hashem’s world; the development of the mind and heart; to gemilus chasadim and the building of community. Every student contributes to and benefits from this atmosphere, and we expect our students to conduct themselves with kavod haTorah and kavod haBriyos.

    The central components of our program and the expectations that we have for our students have been developed with a single intention: to provide talmidos with an environment conducive to spiritual growth, academic achievement, and personal development. We want each of them to thrive.

    Our goal is to foster the awareness that we are connected to Hakadosh Baruch Hu in a way that transcends time and space, that we are bound by an eternal covenant, that He loved, loves, and will always love us. Our mission remains the same regardless of setting: to teach, support, and bring out each student’s best.

    Our students aspire to higher education in both Torah and General Studies, enrolling in the world’s finest seminaries and universities after graduation. Our staff of highly qualified teachers provides a stimulating General Studies curriculum complete with college preparatory instruction, including Honors and Advanced Placement courses, and the opportunity to earn college credits before graduation, priming our students for higher education and life as professional Torah Jews.
