Educational Philosophy

The core of Jewish continuity stems from the education of our children. LHA’s vision of providing authentic, meaningful and relevant Jewish and General education to all students is predicated on the world view of Shulchan Oruch, Chabad Chassidus and the directives of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. The redemption is dependent upon our fulfilling this task. 

We Believe that a quality program is a caring and nurturing environment in which children can flourish while discovering their strengths; enables students to achieve the highest level of learning through being taught a love of learning and an understanding of the learning process; goes beyond traditional classroom teaching and exposes children to the arts, physical wellness, and athletics.

Students are taught respect for all regardless of background; ethical and moral values and the development of midos tovos (good character traits); an appreciation of the importance of being midakdek (punctilious) in halacha and minhagim by promoting spiritual and ritual observances; an attachment to Eretz Yisrael and its people as well as a sense of responsibility for their welfare.

Elementary

At LHA we strive to develop responsible, lifelong learners with a passion for exploration and values that will sustain our students as they grow. The most important skills students need to be successful are collaboration, creativity, communication and critical thinking. We encourage students to nurture these essential skills. Our curriculum works to tap into adolescents’ innate ability to thrive when given choices in their learning. We strive to develop responsible, lifelong learners with a passion for exploration and values that will sustain them as they grow. The curriculum is stimulating, hands-on, and includes technology.

Middle

Middle School is a time children grow tremendously and push to gain more independence. They move from the concrete to more abstract thinking and start to question more. We aim to create a safety net around them to allow for experimentation, successes, and mistakes. We enable our students to make smart choices by giving them clear guidelines and expectations. Being respectful, prepared, productive, and always demonstrating best effort are major components of our classroom conduct goals. Our classroom experience encourages exploration, insight, and cooperation, as well as mastery of core skills and knowledge. Opportunities for school leadership and service are an integral part of our middle school experience.

We Believe That:

Opportunities must be provided for all Jewish children to receive excellence in Jewish and general studies education. Should a child require services not available at our school, we will guide the parents in identifying suitable placement.

A quality program must include a caring and nurturing environment in which children can flourish while discovering their strengths.

Students should be taught respect for all individuals regardless of background.

Students should be aware of their civic responsibilities and be prepared to become productive, committed members of their family, community and people.

In order for students to achieve the highest level of learning, they must be taught a love of learning and an understanding of the learning process.

The safe use of technology can greatly enhance one’s pursuit of knowledge.

Loyalty to Judaism cannot be separated from Jewish learning.

A well-rounded education goes beyond traditional classroom teaching and should expose children to the arts, physical wellness, and athletics.

We seek to instill in our students an attachment to Eretz Yisrael and its people as well as a sense of responsibility for their welfare.

Through professional instruction, the Torah can be made accessible in its original, unadulterated form to every child.

The teaching of ethical and moral values and the development of midos tovos (good character traits) are an important component of complete education.

Effective Jewish education is achieved by promoting spiritual and ritual observances. Special care is taken to instill an appreciation of the importance of being midakdek (punctilious) in halacha (Jewish law) and minhagim (custom).

It is important to appreciate what it means to be an American. Students should be aware of current events in their community and worldwide.

We believe that the students of the Hebrew Academy, through a well-balanced religious and general studies education, will be capable of functioning as dedicated men and women in the context of the American society emotionally, academically, socially and spiritually.

We Strive To:

Teach students to study and comprehend material in a wide array of content areas. Teach students to develop self-responsibility. Teach children to respect their physical and personal environments.

Prepare students to achieve to their highest potential.

Instill in students an intellectual curiosity. Impart to our students the total Lubavitch Hebrew Academy philosophy
