Welcome from the Headmaster

I take this opportunity to thank you for visiting Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy, one of the foremost academies of Jewish learning in New England.

Founded in 1944, in the basement of a local synagogue, our school can boast over 3500 alumni. As leaders in their respective fields and communities, including attorneys, physicians, Rabbis, social workers, and self-employed business owners, our graduates all share the common thread of having had a unique educational experience, both Judaic and secular, in their formative years. The values which our students learned, the teachings which they gleaned, and the life lessons which they experienced, enable them to face life's challenges with confidence and accomplish their goals.

At Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy, it's not just about grades; but rather about developing minds and habits of learning that ignite intellectual curiosity for years to come. We are fortunate to have a dedicated faculty who feel the awesome responsibility of maximizing the potential of every student and instilling a life-long love and passion for learning.

I look forward to meeting you and your children.
Rabbi Sheya Hecht
