Message from the Executive Director
We have a tremendous amount to celebrate and be proud of as a family
This past year, Hebrew Academy was featured in local and international media no less than 30 times. It’s no wonder our school is garnering so much attention – we are doing some incredible things! From our spectacular Elementary School-wide multimedia exhibit From Generation to Generation, to a slew of new extra-curricular Judaic programs in the High School for both young men and women, to our students’ overwhelming participation and achievements in Chidon HaTanach, Moot Beit Din, science, math and athletic competitions – to cite but a few – we have a tremendous amount to celebrate and be proud of as a family.
The successes of the past year can be attributed to the collaborative efforts and unparalleled support of a number of people: our exceptional Leadership Team, including principals Dr. Laura Segall and Shauna Joyce, all of the directors, coordinators and department heads, our wonderful parents, talented faculty and staff and committed volunteers, our valued HAPA partners and our generous donors.
Thanks to our unity as a community, we can also take pride in having realized a number of objectives that were set at the start of the year. Together, we have continued to foster a culture of respect in the school, become a community that recognizes the importance of giving, and secured a new Head of School who is lauded as one of the top educators in North America. Indeed, we have a come a long, long way.
I look forward to working with our new Head of School Dr. Stein and to continue to partner with all of you – the vital members of the Hebrew Academy family – to bring our school to even greater heights in the coming year.
