Welcome to Ezra Academy!

We are a preschool-Grade 8 Schechter independent school in the greater New Haven area. Our faculty, students, parents, and alumni create a vibrant and caring community! We warmly welcome children from all branches of Judaism.


Ezra Academy stresses the creation of lifelong learners with a strong Jewish identity. We help children develop strong critical-thinking and decision-making skills, and our students become empowered through learning to become socially responsible citizens.


I look forward to speaking with you.

Director of Strategic Initiatives and Enrollment
