The International Jewish College Prep Boarding School
  • The American Hebrew Academy is the only Jewish college preparatory boarding school in the world.
  • We are a caring community with dedicated faculty and staff who challenge Academy students of all backgrounds to maximize their full academic, personal, and spiritual potential, inpsiring our students to discover who they are and who they can become, as learners, as leaders, and as Jews.
  • The Academy seeks to educate the whole student - mind, body and soul - while engaging in experiential learning. Our challenging dual curriculum is based on traditional college preparatory classes together with an enriched program of Jewish studies.
  • We are American, Mexican, French, Indonesian, Australian (to name a few). We play tennis, soccer, basketball and volleyball. We do theater and art, we love cooking, and science and math. We are conservative, reform, orthodox and every Jew in between.
