Children at SAR Academy

Early Learning Center

At the Early Learning Center (ELC), SAR’s school for children ages 2-6, we create a joyous and loving Jewish environment filled with experiential learning, passionate and nurturing teachers, Hebrew immersion, and STEAM-focused curricula.


In grades 1-8, we open our students' minds to history, literature, math, science, tefillah, and Medinat Yisrael – all through the lens of Torah. We nurture in our children the understanding that Torah informs who we are in all of our interactions, and how we hold ourselves in the world.

High School

SAR High School is a co-educational Modern Orthodox yeshiva, dedicated to shaping thoughtful and caring young men and women with a deep commitment to and as well as a deep concern for the world around them.

Our full experience will be launching in the fall.
