Dear Friends,

Welcome to the Hebrew Academy Jewish Day School of Orange County. From the first moment you step foot on our sprawling 11 acre campus you will feel the joy of belonging to a warm and inviting community of students who come from diverse Jewish backgrounds. For over fifty years the Academy has been providing our award winning preschool through high school educational program to thousands of students who, today, are respected professionals in almost every field of pursuit while living as proud Jews and taking leadership positions in their communities. Our alumni have graduated from the best universities throughout the country while developing lifelong friendships at the school and remaining part of the Academy family. It should come as no surprise that thirty percent of our present student body are children of our alumni.

Students at the Academy are provided a rigorous academic program in general and Judaic studies while developing an enduring love for learning. Our happy scholars are imbued with foundational values that are the hallmark of our program and receive a full academic curriculum which includes a focus on social emotional skills. Our 21st century curriculum includes project based learning, art, music, STEAM and cutting edge technology based skills. The Judaic program with Torah lessons, Hebrew language and Israel studies round off their total learning and character development experience.

All our teachers are devoted to their students and experts in their field with most having post graduate degrees. They are caring, knowledgeable professionals who are deeply committed to the growth of each student. More importantly they are model mentsches imbued with a love for each child. Our faculty’s greatest wish is to to make a difference in our students’ lives and a positive impact in our community.

We look forward to welcoming you to our dynamic community to become partners in the future success of your child’s education.
