More Than Academic Strength.
The Strength of Identity.

We are a Jewish day school that is accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS), and a recipient of the 2016 National Blue Ribbon award. 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.

  • Schechter’s award-winning and highly-skilled faculty and staff employ a variety of teaching methods to reach and inspire every student to discover their passion.
  • Our school’s firm grounding in Jewish values and traditions creates a meaningful framework for our students’ moral and character development.

We’re happy to welcome you for a tour, to meet our students, faculty and staff, and to see the Schechter difference. We know you’ll enjoy being a part of the dynamic and exciting educational experience that occurs within our walls. Something remarkable happens every day at Solomon Schechter.

Sincerely,

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.
