Mission Statement

The mission of Torah Day School is to provide and promote the highest quality Judaic and general education to a diverse community of Jewish children. Our aim is to motivate students to reach personal excellence, and to be conscientious members of society. Within a warm nurturing environment, our focus is to inspire a love for learning, develop academic and social skills, and foster responsibility in each individual.

A well-balanced education will foster a commitment to using Torah values as a guide to the decisions of life, community, and life-long learning and teaching.

Educational Philosophy

Torah Day School was founded on a philosophy, that integrates the love of G‑d, intellectual knowledge and understanding of the Torah, and the appreciation of the uniqueness of every individual of the community.

Our administration and staff implement this philosophy  in all areas of Judaic and general studies   while fostering a supportive environment for all our students.

A Torah Day School education stresses holistic growth in the academic, spiritual, moral and social/emotional domains. Rigorous academics are pursued with a recognition that our students possess a variety of learning styles and abilities. Students are taught to apply academic lessons from their practical settings to their daily lives. Respect for each individual's unique identity and talent forms the core of enhancing our students sense of self. Ethics and moral values are explicitly taught, modeled, and practiced throughout the daily life of school. Torah Day School  teachers help students realize that the Judaic and secular worlds are interconnected. Faculty strive to inspire and motivate each child to enjoy learning and accept challenges while stimulating critical thought processes. They also promote the student's sense of responsibility for self and others by active community involvement. Students are encouraged to analyze their learning experiences in order to assess personal strengths and areas for improvement. 

The creation of the State of Israel is one of the seminal events in Jewish history.  Recognizing the significance of the State and its national institutions, we seek to instill in our students an attachment to the Land of Israel and its people as well as a sensitivity for their welfare.

By empowering the head, heart and soul, a Torah Day School education provides our students with knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to become successful members of contemporary society.
