Hebrew Academy is a Modern Orthodox Dati Tziyoni school that believes in the preeminence of Torah and the fulfillment of Mitzvot according to Halacha, the centrality and religious significance of the Modern State of Israel, excellence in both General and Judaic studies, and the Divinely implanted potential within each and every person.

The creation of the State of Israel is one of the seminal events in Jewish history. Recognizing the significance of the State and its national institutions, we seek to instill in our students an attachment to the State of Israel as well as a sense of responsibility for its welfare. The centrality of the State of Israel (Medinat Yisrael) in modern Jewish identity is woven throughout our curriculum, and as a result, many of our graduates spend a gap year in Israel.
