AcademicsThe Akiva Advantage
Living Our Values
The Akiva Advantage begins with our mission – academic excellence, foster critical inquiry, and inspire informed Jewish living – and comes to fruition through our students.
At Akvia, students are given the time, space, and support they need to explore who they are as individuals and their responsibility towards the world. They are taught how to think for themselves and find their own voice and values in our Jewish tradition. They are challenged academically and through these challenges they learn what kind of learner they are and what they need to be successful. They are given an opportunity to explore their interest and the support (academically, socially and emotionally) to have their ideas and dreams come to life.
Our school, was founded in the Jewish tradition and our values of Torah, responsibility, spirit, respect, learning, global community and the Jewish people grounds us every day. Students, faculty, and staff at Akiva strive to live our values every day. Our school serves as a safe space where students can explore their own identify in relation to their heritage and create their own narrative how they understand who they are in our world and our tradition. They are empowered to be upstanders even when the situations are hard and we teach them not run away from problems, but rather embrace the challenge and learn from the times they fail.
