Hebrew Academy students will tell you that their personal interests are embraced. We are pleased to offer multiple clubs for our students. If a student seeks a club that does not exist in the school, they are empowered to create that club with the help of many willing faculty advisors. There really is something for everyone at Hebrew Academy. Here is an example of just a few of our clubs:
Hebrew Academy is pleased to support the dramatic arts. Beginning with Early Childhood and Elementary School, students participate in annual grade level performances on stage. As the student's personal interests grow, we also offer Drama as an after school activity for Elementary School students, and as an elective on our Middle and High School programs. Drama is also available as an after school club for Middle and High School students featuring two annual productions. Recent performances include: Charlotte's Web and The Odd Couple, and coming soon is Class Action.
The film club meets weekly to watch and discuss movies, and aims to expose our student to a wide variety of films based on subject, time period, directorial style, etc.
Students work collaboratively using engineering skills and knowledge to work on semester-long projects. This semester students are working on a cost-effective prosthetic hand.
