Akiba-Schechter Jewish Day School
Akiba-Schechter Jewish Day School provides an excellent secular and Judaic education in Hyde Park to a diverse community of Jewish children from all over Chicagoland.It is our mission to promote academic excellence and develop students with strong Jewish identities. By focusing on the individual gifts and needs of each student, our teachers create a caring family of learners who are committed to responsible citizenship and the performance of mitzvot.
Our school is unique in many ways. Students and teachers come from diverse Jewish observance and cultures, forming a family whose members respect one another because of their differences – not in spite of them. New students are integrated into the Akiba-Schechter family every year through all-school events and multi-class programs. Special aspects of our program include small class sizes, multi-age classrooms and flexible age grouping.
