Welcome to Solomon Schechter Day School of Metropolitan Chicago!

Thank you for exploring the gift of a Schechter education. I look forward to guiding you through the admissions process. Whether you are a current Schechter family or considering Schechter for the first time, I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome you!

Our unique combination of general and Judaic studies imparts a deeply-rooted values system in students, enabling them to become caring, knowledgeable and informed citizens.

I encourage you to take a few minutes to learn more from our Head of School, Dr. Lena Kushnir through our recent Virtual Open House:


We know you and your children will benefit from being a part of this dynamic and exciting educational journey. Something remarkable happens every day at Solomon Schechter.

We’re happy to welcome you for a tour, to meet our students, faculty and staff, and to experience the Schechter difference.

Best,
Hillary Dunn (SSDS '87)
Director of Admissions and Enrollment


I transferred to Schechter in 5th grade because I wanted to be challenged more academically and I wanted to be in a Jewish setting. Right from the start my teachers and classmates made me feel so welcome. I love our community, the amazing faculty that has supported me educationally and personally, and learning about and celebrating Jewish life. I am so happy here.
