The academic program of the Middle School takes an integrative approach to academic studies. The focus is on the systematic acquisition of those skills necessary for achieving independence as a learner.

Our rigorous academic program provides our students with the skills and information they need to enter the High School of their choice. A general curriculum overview is presented here; more particulars will become available as we continue developing our curriculum in tandem with New York State and national standards, which are constantly evolving.

The Hebrew Academy utilizes a creative “hands-on” dual curriculum designed to fully integrate General Studies and Judaic Studies. The Judaic Studies component emphasizes the fundamentals of Hebrew reading, Jewish history, holidays, Jewish values, Bible, the Jewish life cycle, the land of Israel and prayer. The General Studies Program includes the traditional independent school curriculum focusing on basic skills and the development of higher order thinking skills. Supportive pull-out programs for both remediation and advanced studies complement our rigorous “normal” tract across the curriculum.

The foundation of the General Studies curriculum lies in the New York State Standards. The Judaic Studies curriculum is unique to Hebrew Academy and has been recognized as ground breaking and innovative while holding to the traditions of the faith. A Values curriculum is interlaced in all classroom activities.

Core curriculum subjects in the Judaic Studies include reading and understanding Biblical Hebrew (Lashon HaTorah); reading, writing and conversing in modern Hebrew; Prayer, Chumash, Navi (Prophets), Mishna/Gemora and Halacha (Jewish Law). Jewish values, Midot, holidays and traditions are emphasized; a deep love for our rich Jewish heritage is instilled, and we foster a strong appreciation and support for the Land of Israel and our brothers and sisters- Am Yisrael.

Our General Studies curriculum conforms with the highest academic standards, exceeding the requirements of New York State. Courses include Langauge Arts, reading and comprehension skills, writing instruction and composition. Mathematics, Science and Technology, Social Studies, Art, Music and Physical Education are key components in our highly acclaimed general studies program.

In both curriculums, our objective is to help our students acheive success by utilizing higher order thinking skills, developing solid study habits and sound organizational skills, and learning how to work collaboratively and independently.
