Who We Are
Akiva School was founded in 1968 by a group of parents led by Rabbi David Hartman who sought to create a school community that would meet the academic, religious and social-emotional needs of its students. As we enter our fifth decade, we are proud to be guided by the profound understanding of our founders while simultaneously growing and moving forward with the times to meet the changing needs of families living in the 21st century.
