Solomon Schechter School of Westchester, a Conservative Jewish day school, is set apart by a unique approach that empowers and cultivates the mind, body, and spirit. Teaching Jewish values and critical thinking, we optimize individual development and help students passionately apply a value-based intelligence to their lives.
We provide comprehensive general and Jewish academic programs, the arts, athletics and extra-curricular experiences and encourage openness to new ideas. This imbues our students with the confidence to find their own voice and navigate life’s journey with intellectual honesty and moral integrity, ultimately preparing them for college and beyond.
More than simply a K–12 school—we are a community. We inspire our students to sustain bonds with the Jewish Community and Israel, celebrating meaningful lives as citizens of the world who thrive on individual and group success.

NYSAIS Athletic Association
The mission of New York State interscholastic athletic programs is to foster the quest for excellence by creating an educational and competitive experience within an atmosphere of sportsmanship. Successful programs develop individual and team potential by promoting high standards of competence, character, civility, and citizenship.
All good schools continually evaluate their performance by means of their own devising. Without evaluation an institution ossifies, and in a changing world it loses its meaning for society. But the view a school takes of itself needs periodically to be supplemented by an external view, one that brings a perspective the school cannot command.
