Since God created all children as individuals, we are compelled to educate them accordingly. This has been the guiding philosophy of Akiva for 50 years, based on the teachings of Akiva’s founder, Rabbi David Hartman. At Akiva, we celebrate difference, and our teachers foster the unique creative spirit inherent in each of our children. We welcome diversity with the same enthusiasm that we embrace halacha and minhag—Jewish law and tradition—allowing our students to find their own place in the rich heritage of the Jewish people.
Our strong program in English, French, and Hebrew is taught with warmth, enthusiasm, and creativity by our talented team of experienced educators. Our supportive and nurturing classroom environment fosters social and emotional growth, allowing our students to thrive academically. At Akiva, we know that happy students are successful students; investing in our children’s wellbeing is the best way to ensure that they embrace their studies with joy and confidence.
At Akiva, we encourage a strong partnership with the home and promote active parent participation in our students’ school life. The result is a feeling of family that permeates our halls. We welcome you to experience the joys of being part of our Akiva family.
