There are so many facets to SKA! The rich Jewish studies curriculum, offering comprehensive study of Tanach, Torah shebe’al peh, halachah, Jewish history, and Hebrew language is designed to challenge diverse learners and critical thinkers, while inspiring the next generation of Jewish women. The popular four-year art academy; the wide range of AP courses; electives such as STEM courses, biomedical technology, sign language, forensics, and creative writing; and research programs in science and social science empower students to pursue their interests beyond the core curriculum. The extremely successful chesed program is an integral part of the school and enables the girls to contribute to the larger community in a meaningful way.

SKA offers its students opportunities for personal development and spiritual growth. As Mrs. Helen Spirn, head of school, observes, “Throughout the year, each SKA student is able to develop her sense of self while enjoying the experience of working with a group and getting close to girls in all grades. This is especially true at our annual SKA Production, a venue for our girls to develop and display the talents that Hashem has blessed them with, using drama, comedy, music, and sign language.” The award winning Torah Bowl, debate, and mock trial teams are offered alongside many sports programs.

SKA has the resources of a large school with a broad range of academic and extracurricular activities, and the warmth and individualization of a small school where everyone is cared for and valued.

Prospective parents and students are invited to attend this year’s open house, October 20, 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. SKA looks forward to welcoming the Class of 2018! v
