    Bet Shraga Hebrew Academy of the Capital District is so much more than a Hebrew Day school providing a dual curriculum (Judaic and general studies). Our inclusive environment is family friendly warm & compassionate caring & considerate. We celebrate every simcha we hug & support each other during the bad times. A real sense of derech eretz permeates our school. The 'buddies' program pairs the Middle Schoolers with the K&1 kids which fosters a community environment throughout our school preventing bullying. The Friday Shabbat oneg program with singing & dancing generates tons of ruach and is one of the most beloved things our school does! Games & prizes based on weekly Parsha spelling bees (Hebrew & English) guess the blessing slide shows from recent field trips & so much more is fit into that weekly 30 minute slot! All the kids look forward to the fantastic field trips - ie TEVA nature camp in 6th grade Philadelphia 7th grade and Israel for our graduating 8th grade class. We have a great family 'potluck' shabbat once a month - casual inclusive family friendly! We include our PALS (preschoolers and little siblings). We have an award winning OVA team - Olympic Visual Arts!

    Hebrew Academy is great and getting better all the time. The teachers are excellent the courses challenging and the Jewish values which are taught are those which I share. Students leaving Hebrew Academy are far ahead of their high school counterparts. The school is a great value for all that the students get.

    Hebrew Academy is an excellent school. I have my three children in the school and am very impressed with the outstanding academic atmosphere. My older child's class is more than one year ahead in Math and Science than public school kids. He will have 3 Regents exams this year... before High School! The teacher/student ratio makes for a very attentive environment and the administration is receptive to concerns. In the past this has not always been the case but the new Head of School is AMAZING! My children are in a safe environment with their peers and have felt comfortable with the level of Jewish education- it was never imposed on them or us. I am grateful there are things they can learn at school that I could never offer them at home.

    The school is amazing. The children come out well ahead of kids in any other school. The teachers use many different methods and emphasize academic learning and critical thinking in a variety of ways.
