Excellence in Character, Excellence in Education
In the tradition of the finest Jewish day schools, Torah Academy combines an outstanding Judaic curriculum with an excellent general studies program, preparing our children for the most prestigious high schools, colleges and universities. Torah Academy's rigorous academic program also includes instilling within our students values and virtues, such as kindness, respect for elders and peers, patience, generosity and many other ethical qualities that the Torah teaches us to cultivate within ourselves. A Torah Academy student will not only have a well-rounded, superior knowledge of their Jewish heritage and general studies education; he or she will be encouraged to achieve personal growth by working on their character traits and having the refined behavior that is the hallmark of a human being.
The warmth, dedication and personal role modeling of our administration and staff is a fundamental component of our educational mission. Responsibility to our fellow Jews, contributing to our community and feeling a connection with our brethren in the Land of Israel are likewise important facets of our program.
Our Educational Philosophy: Building Confidence
The most important foundation for your child's educational growth is a strong sense of self. Children who have confidence and feel secure about their abilities, environment and knowledge will learn critical thinking skills and information in the most effective manner. A warm, supportive and non-judgmental school setting is the greenhouse that will allow our sons and daughters to flourish.
Interactive and hands-on learning is another crucial ingredient in the educational process. Children learn best by exploring and discovering the world around them, making hypotheses and testing them in the laboratory of life. The knowledge gained by self-discovery is retained longer and with more clarity, and will be applied to future life experiences as they happen. Frequent field trips to nature centers, museums, orchards and other hands-on centers of learning will augment and enhance this experiential approach to cognitive development.
Torah Academy offers that fertile ground to plant the seeds for your child's success!
