Academic Support

The Hebrew Academy proudly offers support services for students in an effort to help each learner meet his/her fullest potential. ESOL assists speakers of foreign languages acquire English skills; the Academic Enhancement Program aids gifted students and those students working below grade level; and Mechina introduces Judaic studies and Hebrew reading, writing and conversation to those who have not had the opportunity to learn Hebrew previously.  Perhaps the best resource is our faculty.  It is not unusual to see faculty members working with students before and after school or during lunch to help their students achieve success in the classroom.

Technology Resources

The wise use of advanced technologies enhances everything from the study of Torah texts to a deeper understanding of the latest scientific discoveries.  Our ever–expanding technological resources include up-to-date computer labs, SMART Boards, virtual video learning links to other educational institutions, state-of-the-art equipment in our multiple science laboratories, and more.

Library/Media Center Resources

Our two Library/Media Centers are fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and not only meet but far exceed the number of books per student, the scope of the collection, and the quality standards required by that organization.  Students acquire ever increasing research skills necessary for success.
