Building knowledge, professionalism and excellence

At Solomon Schechter, students learn how to think for themselves, discover their sense of self, and become Jewish citizens of the world. Schechter’s dual curriculum in general and Judaic Studies provides them with a rich foundation of knowledge, enabling them to thrive academically and fully engage in Jewish life.

Our educational program promotes values-based decision making, critical thinking across disciplines, and an analytical approach to problem-solving. From the Ginsburg Early Childhood Center through Sager Solomon Schechter (K-8), we offer a stimulating experience for children to grow cognitively, socially and emotionally.

Understanding their Jewish roots and more

We believe every child is unique, and should receive an education that meets his or her educational and developmental needs. A highly-skilled faculty and resource support staff, coupled with an innovative curriculum ensures that each child is empowered to reach his or her highest potential.

Schechter graduates emerge as knowledgeable Jews and creative thinkers who can respect diverse ideas and opinions, feel passionate about Israel, advocate for themselves and important causes, and use their knowledge and skills to enrich the world.
Beyond the Judaic education, Schechter provided the foundation for me to discover my passion for math and science. The teachers encouraged my curiosity and motivated me to pursue the subjects that I enjoy.
