SAR Academy & SAR High School
SAR Academy and High School are Modern Orthodox institutions located in the Riverdale section of the Bronx serving students from pre-school through high school. Both schools are as unusual in their physical structure as in their spiritual makeup. From the light filled design of each of its buildings, to the openness that is at the core of its architecture, SAR is a school with open spaces, an open heart and a spirit of openness towards each and every student. Each of our three divisions, the Early Learning Center (ELC), the Academy and the High School, recognizes that there is a unique light that each individual brings to our school; the challenge that we welcome each and every day is to find the catalyst that will ignite the sparks and enable each child to shine.
Building on the philosophy of the Academy, SAR High School has taken the model of a dynamic, open education to a new level; creating its own independent curriculum in which students are challenged to explore and master a broad range of subjects in both general and Judaic studies. All disciplines are viewed as part of a greater whole; reflecting a “Grand Conversation” between people, God, and the world.
SAR is a place where learning and life come together; where Torah and secular studies are integrated; where a love for Israel and Jewish tradition are fostered; where study is probing and meaningful; where students discover the beauty of their heritage. SAR is a school that fosters Jewish pride, and a deep sense of concern and commitment to the American-Jewish community, the State of Israel and Jews around the world. It is a school where the faculty inspires a love of learning and academic excellence.
