We offer grade-level appropriate instruction in the following general academics classes.
Our General Studies Philosophy
At Torah Academy, our goal is to fit the curriculum to the student. Every student is different and needs to connect with the material in his or her own way. We believe that when students are given a voice in driving their education they enjoy the ride far more than when they are told what to do.
Our faculty actively use technology to accomplish our goals of critical thinking and analysis. We invite you to see our students engaged in their studies and making discoveries within their learning. Whether it is in Social Studies, Math, Science, or Language Arts, our students are being trained to see these areas as complimentary to each other.
Our aim is the development of these skills, as well as the intellectual development of each student into one who can not only answer the questions being given, but into a student that can generate the next round of questions as well.
Torah Academy’s parents have entrusted us to educate each child in a Torah-true environment. It is a labor of love and one that we embrace at our core.
Judaic Studies Philosophy
Our Judaic Studies curriculum centers around four common cores – derech eretz, middot, mitzvot and avodat Hashem – and develops concentrically out from there.
The early childhood’s strong foundation of Hebrew reading skills are cemented in kindergarten and a solid foundation of davening from a Siddur and learning from a Chumash begin in first and second grades.
Going forward – in third through eighth grades – critical thinking, core facts and textual skills are stressed in Chumash, Navi, Mishnah and Gemara. Our goal is to empower our students to continue learning Torah on their own, throughout their lives.
