The transition from our ELC to grade school is a smooth one, as the lower elementary classrooms continue to have group-based work and individualized learning.

Our students learn Hebrew language, Jewish holidays, law, and culture, and pray daily. We teach them to read the original Torah texts and commentaries, not just take our word for it. Students develop a love and pride for being Jewish.

In General Studies, they continue to sharpen the critical skills that will lay the foundation for their future academic success at Torah Academy and beyond. The curriculum addresses all areas of the state standards, including mathematics, strategic thinking and logical processes, reading fluency and comprehension, creative writing, vocabulary, and spelling, social studies, geography and history, and scientific reasoning and exploration.
