The North Shore Hebrew Academy is a Modern Orthodox Yeshiva Day School. Classes are heterogeneous and coeducational. Embracing the finest aspects of Jewish and Western cultures, we encourage our students to develop a personal commitment to a life of Torah and mitzvot in the modern world, as well as foster a love for עם ישראל, תורת ישראל וארץישראל.
Our professional staff nurtures and supports each student’s quest for academic excellence. We provide our children with a superior Judaic Studies עברית בעברית curriculum with an emphasis on לשון in our Hebrew language studies. Our teachers and staff also place the utmost importance in imparting kindness and good manners in our students referred to as “menschlichkeit.”
