The city of Greensboro is a vibrant community located in the heart of North Carolina's Piedmont Triad Region.
Greensboro has more than 200 years of history dating back to the Revolutionary War. The Jewish community in the city dates back to the early 1900s and is an active, involved, and dynamic community today.
Greensboro offers a rich and vibrant cultural life, from the International Civil Rights Center and Museum, housed in the former Woolworth's, the site of a non-violent protest in the U.S. civil rights movement; the award-winning Triad Stage; the Greensboro Cultural Center at Festival Park which offers a full range of performance activities for adults and children; to The Greensboro Children's Museum; and the Greensboro Science Center, which includes an Animal Discovery Zoo and a new SciQuarium.
Greensboro's historic downtown area is filled with restaurants, antique shops, and art galleries. For fans of outdoor activity, the Piedmont Triad region is filled with spectacular national parks with biking, walking, and hiking trails.
Just minutes from the Academy are numerous shopping centers with supermarkets, specialty stores, restaurants, and entertainment options. Students can take advantage of regularly scheduled shuttles to enjoy what Greensboro has to offer.
Greensboro is a wonderful home for the Academy. Our students get involved in the Greensboro community. They volunteer for Special Olympics, Greensboro Youth Leadership, Friendship Circle, and other Jewish and civic organizations. They participate in extracurricular activites off campus, study at local colleges, and take advantage of the warm and involved Jewish life in the local congregations.
