About Us


The mission of Staten Island Hebrew Academy (SIHA) is to nurture in our students a deep appreciation for autonomous learning, self-development, and love for the Jewish people, values and culture. We achieve remarkable educational results by combining a rigorous, enrichment-saturated, semi-departmentalized secular curriculum with an emphasis on student centered learning. Our program nurtures strong character development through a Judaic Studies program where empathy is daily taught and modeled. This social skill emphasizes proper moral and ethical development of our students as recognized and learned through our traditional teachings from the Torah. The need to establish a school that meets the demands of the modern Jewish community has arrived. SIHA is such as school! Within SIHA’s walls your child will receive all the necessary tools to realize his or her potential and become both an accomplished individual and a successful member of our growing and dynamic community. SIHA has only one goal–SUCCESS! Your child is our most precious gift, not a number or a statistic, and you, the parent, are our most important partner. Working together we will achieve our goal!
