  • The American Hebrew Academy was established to provide an outstanding coeducational college preparatory program and Jewish secondary education. It is our goal to intellectually motivate academically able students who are prepared to engage in the rigorous discipline of the dual curriculum. The Academy seeks to educate the whole student - mind, body and soul. Founded in 2000 on 100 acres in Greensboro, North Carolina, the American Hebrew Academy is the only international Jewish residential secondary school. The Academy provides a nurturing educational environment where students are challenged to prepare fo college, explore their Jewish identity and graduate with lifelong skills for learning and leadership. The American Hebrew Academy uses a comprehensive pedagogical strategy of examining, discussing and expanding topics in a small classroom environment, and a program of challenging, immersive experiences to equip young adults with independent reasoning skills, strength of character and a well-developed sense of Jewish identity. Students graduate with confidence to continue their personal growth, engage with their communities and inspire others. Twenty-seven percent of the faculty hold a Ph.D., Ed.D. or J.D.
