More Than an Education:
A Foundation for Life

Schechter Westchester is a welcoming and inclusive community in which passionate educators are dedicated to bringing academic excellence and a love of Jewish life and learning to students from kindergarten through 12th grade. Our goal is to nurture the development of individual identity, build ethical character, foster the discovery and pursuit of passions, and fully prepare students to thrive on the college campus and in the workplace. Schechter Westchester students excel in the classroom, in the laboratory, on the playing field, and on the stage and ultimately become leaders in the greater world.

Rigorous Curriculum

Our students learn to think, write, speak, and create in both English and Hebrew. From the engineering lab to the beit midrash (Torah study center), they become critical thinkers and readers, articulate speakers, and analytical and creative writers. Every year our students achieve National Merit recognition and earn admission to dozens of the country's premier colleges and universities.

Dynamic Education

Students with a wide range of academic abilities, learning styles, interests, and talents thrive in our classrooms. Differentiated instruction that includes flexible and fluid learning groups is a regular part of classroom life. Our support services team incorporates learning specialists, psychologists, counselors, enrichment specialists, a speech and language pathologist, and an occupational therapist. Weaving together skills learned in general and Judaic studies, STEAM courses (including engineering and computer science classes across all grades), the arts, athletics, and a broad array of co-curricular programs, our students are well prepared to meet the demands of the twenty-first century world.

These words by Rabbi Yishmael, which reflect the essence of our mission, are found in Pirkei Avot. They advise us to lead lives filled with learning, teaching, preservation of our heritage, and social action.
