School Vision and Mission

The Akiva School community all share a clear sense of purpose and common set of beliefs as defined in our school vision and mission statements:

  • School Vision:
    A community that inspires lifelong learning, religious growth, an enduring connection to the Jewish people and the State of Israel, and a commitment to making the world a better place.
  • Mission:
    We are a Jewish elementary school committed to each student’s academic success, personal growth and development of Jewish identity. Through a partnership of school and home, Akiva School fosters a nurturing and collaborative learning environment. Our students develop a love for learning and become independent, creative and critical thinkers.
  • Values:
    The core values that guide us are rooted in Jewish tradition. They are expressed for our community in the form of Five Promises…

I promise:

    • To respect myself and others
    • To treat others with kindness
    • To respect my property and the property of others
    • To be responsible
    • To give my best
