Curriculum

“Quality Education Rooted in Values … Planting the Seeds for Future Success”

At Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy that motto is our guiding principle. Our challenging, dual curriculums of Judaic and Secular studies complement each other. Teachers work together to create a seamless learning experience based on the following principles:

  • All children can experience success in learning.
  • Assessing children’s prior knowledge identifies the starting point of new learning
  • Intervention options ensure student achievement
  • A strong partnership among home, school, and the community promotes students’ success
  • A variety of tools that are consistent, ongoing, and aligned with instruction can best assess student progress

Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy was founded on the ideals of Torah and as such, ethics and values are incorporated into every aspect of the student’s day. Our students develop outstanding academic and social skills while building the self-confidence necessary to succeed in a contemporary world.
