Jewish boarding schools

Find the top Jewish and Hebrew boarding schools in Canada and the US

Jewish schools are faith-based schools, affiliated with the religion of Judaism. Sometimes they’re called “Hebrew schools.” Most private Jewish schools are day schools (known as “Jewish day schools”). Read more

There are also great Jewish boarding schools, though. These schools are slowly popping up across Canada and the United States (US).

For instance, American Hebrew Academy, in Greensboro, North Carolina, was founded in 1996 and began accepting students in 2001. Right now, it's unique: it's the only international Jewish college prep boarding school in the world.

There are also Jewish boarding schools which are on the more religious side. These schools, often called "yesihvas," are traditional schools devoted to the study of Jewish texts, such as the Talmud, as well as rabbinic literature. There are also yeshiva schools which offer day programs.

Jewish and Hebrew boarding schools tend to be very strong in core academics, such as math, science, and the language arts. They also offer intensive Jewish studies programs, focused on torah study, Jewish history, and Hebrew. And, they aim to instill traditional Jewish values and a strong Jewish identity in their students.
