General School Mission

"The Hebrew Academy is an integral part of the South Florida Jewish community. Its role is to carry out the Torah's mandate to teach the principles and practices of Judaism to our students and their families with love and sensitivity. We strive to develop an appreciation for and commitment to Judaism as a way of life, affecting both the way we think and the way we act. Our aim is to engender within our students a sense of commitment and caring of one human being for another, as well as to develop within them a sense of responsibility for the environment, and all of creation. We encourage our students to become involved and actively participate in the concerns and activities within their local, national and world communities. They are trained to aspire to and assume leadership roles within their community, through taking an active role in its needs, thereby becoming productive American citizens, recognizing and internalizing their responsibilities of citizenship. Our entire learning environment is suffused with service learning.
Students of the Hebrew Academy are taught to synthesize their Torah values and learning with the finest values of our democratic society. The Hebrew Academy's principles include the belief that the centrality of the State of Israel (Medinat Yisrael), the love of one Jew for another (Ahavat Yisrael) and the student's responsibility to the Jewish Community (Kelal Yisrael) are vital components of the educational experience. To enroll a student in the Hebrew Academy is to commit oneself to encouraging, fostering and actively participating in an educational process.
Each student's parents and the school work together to instill and reinforce appropriate values and their behavior to produce a fully integrated Torah personality. The Academy strives to meet the needs of the students in all aspects of learning. We imbue our students with a love for life-long learning and give them the desire and ability to be independent learners. We seek to prepare and develop our students for advanced studies beyond High School through our College Preparatory program, which enables students to continue their education in virtually any field of study they may elect. The Academy instills the best of Western values through the eyes of a Jewish perspective in values and traditions. The Academy is committed to Zionism and the State of Israel and promotes that commitment in its teachings and programs.
