Mission Statement
At Striar Hebrew Academy, we build community and better the future, one child at a time. We embrace Modern Orthodox Judaism as the wholehearted expression of Torah values and commitments through broad participation in the world. As a community of diverse individuals with shared values, our interpersonal, communal, and environmental relationships are governed by tzedek (justice) and chesed (loving-kindness).

We offer an outstanding education in the joyous context of Torah and ahavat Yisrael (love of Israel), with equal emphasis on excellence in general and Judaic studies. Our teaching and learning engage the full range of our students' abilities, talents, and interests, providing them with the tools to explore and discover, as each child develops an integrated and confident sense of self.  

Educational Philosophy

Striar Hebrew Academy provides its students with an open and stimulating environment in which they are able to develop an exceptional foundation in both General and Judaic Studies.  Our school's curriculum enables our children to develop a love of learning by acquiring skills in critical thought and multi-modal problem-solving that they are able to apply to all areas of study.

Our faculty and administration recognize the unique abilities and talents of each student and work with every child utilizing a broad spectrum of teaching tools in order to meet a developmentally appropriate range of cognitive profiles and learning styles.  We encourage our students to realize their potential in an atmosphere that is dedicated to personal growth and academic excellence in all the facets of their experience at Striar Hebrew Academy.

Our educational philosophy rests on a foundation of Modern Orthodox Judaism and embraces child-centered, integrated and innovative teaching in all of our curricular, co-curricular and extracurricular programs.
