At the Academy, teenage life unfolds in a genuinely supportive Jewish community. Nobody sits on the sidelines. All our students know they have an important role to play. Respect, honesty, trust, and inclusion are at the core of everything we do.
We believe that an engaged teenager is an empowered teenager, and at the Academy, it's easy for students to get involved. Our Residential Life staff offer multifaceted mentoring, and a warm and nurturing home away from home.
The Academy's staff serve as guardians, guides, advisors and counselors for every student -- including day students.
No more than 20 students live in each student residence house.
