Academics and Curriculum

Engaged active learning is the forefront of our affective classroom environment.  For students in our elementary school, the key to educational success is a solid foundation in both general and Judaic studies.  A developmentally appropriate approach to learning is combined with creative and integrated instruction, while constantly emphasizing the highest academic standards. Our general studies program encompasses language arts, mathematics, social and natural sciences, and the humanities.   Judaic studies combine the teaching of Jewish faith and tradition along with Hebrew language.  Hebrew Academy of Tidewater emphasizes the integration of its dual curriculum which enables our students to bring together their academic strengths along with an understanding of an enriched Jewish culture that cultivates cognitive and spiritual development, and allows our students to formulate long lasting bonds within the community.
