Early Childhood & Lower School

Pirkei Avot describes Torah study in a way that best characterizes our yeshiva: "turn the Torah over, and over again, for everything is within."

For more than 60 years, our Modern Orthodox, co-educational yeshiva has inspired children to embrace Torah study and ideals, and strive for personal excellence, in a safe, supportive environment. Our Judaic and General Studies programs are designed to teach students how to learn by challenging them to discover their strengths, expand their understanding of the world, and deepen their connection with the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Graduates of the Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy are well prepared to take responsibility for themselves and their communities, because we encourage them to forge strong, healthy identities and to treasure their priceless heritage.

At JKHA, we are passionate and proud of the high level of education that we provide in both General and Judaic Studies. Our students are empowered to be informed and inspired by American Jews. Our faculty, well-trained in differentiated instruction, guides our students to become critical thinkers and independent learners. The faculty nurtures our students’ spiritual growth through the study of Torah and the experiential programming that occurs throughout N3-Grade 8. Students are challenged to reach their maximum potential and, both in and out of the classroom, they are fully supported in developing their strengths. Our students are encouraged to embrace Chesed opportunities and are emboldened to think about the needs of others.
