Welcome To Kadima

Kadima. The Way Forward.

Welcome to a place where curiosity rules. 

Where children learn to honor timeless traditions and think for themselves.  Where students are encouraged to ask bold questions, confront paradox, and discover new connections.  Where critical inquiry feels like fun, and lights go on in unexpected ways.  

Welcome to a place where students see links between Moses and Macbeth, anthropology and architecture, biology and Bible.  Where children understand empathy so deeply that they relate to characters — both real and fictional – across the eras in time and draw guidance from them for living today.  Welcome to a place where everything feels accessible, nothing is off-limits, and students yearn to engage with the world.

Core Values

  • Academic Rigor – חכמה – Students lay the foundation for success in high school, college, and beyond by immersing themselves in an enriched program of Judaic and general studies, which brings out the best in each student, with emphasis on 21st- century skills: critical thinking, creativity, communication, and collaboration.

  • Inspired Jewish Learning –  לימוד תורה  – Students internalize the Jewish knowledge, traditions, experiences, and values that are the building blocks of lifelong Jewish meaning and practice מדור לדור, from generation to generation.

  • Social Responsibility –  ואהבת לרעך כמוך– Students apply study to moral action. Guided by compassion and social responsibility, they create caring communities within their classrooms, across the entire school, and within the community at large.  

  • Community – קהילה – We welcome families to an inclusive school in which children, along with their parents, forge warm and caring relationships with their teachers and each other.

  • Love of Israel and the Jewish People –  אהבת ישראל– Students feel a strong kinship to the State of Israel, its people, its language and culture, and the Zionist enterprise, as well as a deep connection and sense of responsibility for the welfare of Jews around the world.  

Our Vision

Making Education Accessible and Sustainable

Making an exceptional Jewish day school education accessible and sustainable for both families and schools is an ongoing challenge facing our community and Jewish communities nationwide. Affordability and excellence are at the heart of the matter. While Kadima will continue to focus on providing a solid academic foundation and addressing students’ comprehensive needs, we are now introducing an innovative tuition model that addresses affordability, sustainability and educational excellence.

We are committed to making Kadima a first-choice for families wanting a Jewish day school education. Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, Kadima’s model reduces tuition up to 11% for early childhood families, and by an average of 43% for elementary and middle school families.  The new tuition removes the complicated time-consuming barriers that often keep families from applying to the school. Now, Jewish education is attainable for more families of varying income levels.
