Ezra Academy's mission as a preschool - 8 Schechter Day School is to educate Jewish children within a nurturing community to become independent, lifelong learners, committed and knowledgeable Jews, and responsible, caring citizens.

Educational Philosophy


Ezra Academy's challenging academic program recognizes each student's talents and individual learning style. Our creative faculty draw from the best of progressive and traditional educational practices.

In our integrated curriculum, Judaic and general studies are woven together, in thematic, spiral curricular units. Students discover the interrelationships among subject areas and continually build on what they have already learned.


Ezra's nurturing environment gives children the confidence to take risks and fulfill their intellectual potential. Our child-centered educational philosophy respects diversity and opposing points of view, always mindful of students' social and emotional development. We value collaboration but also independent study; experiential learning as well as close textual analysis; and creativity and artistic expression along with rigorous logical thinking. Our multiplicity of approaches help students become capable, adaptable learners. We immerse our students in critical, socially-engaged learning relevant to our modern, global age.


Ezra's multi-age classrooms help us make our educational vision a reality.
