Your Home Away From Home


Why a boarding school? We did our homework when we planned the American Hebrew Academy. And we learned that some of the most transformational Jewish experiences happen in camps like Ramah Darom. One of our students calls it "living with everything Jewish." We take that idea and expand it over 10 months. The result: you'll get to know your teachers and classmates as members of a close family.

You'll live and learn with kids who had many different experiences with Judaism. In our school, learning includes everything and can happen anywhere: on the playing fields, over dinner, in the student houses, and sometimes where you least expect it.

At A Glance

Imagine 100 wooded acres, a 22-acre lake, student houses, classroom buildings, and a health and technology center. That's the American Hebrew Academy. There's more. To start, every building is designed by Aaron Green, a former associate of legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Throughout, planners have preserved natural beauty, leaving abundant woods and pathways.
