KSA strives to deepen and broaden the educational experience by crafting skill-based, personalized goals for each student, encouraging collaboration through experiential learning and inspiring excellence in both education and Jewish living.
We believe each child has a unique spark. Teachers inspire students to celebrate their spark, develop it and own their learning. Education should be personalized, competency-based and relevant to life experiences.
Our school is built around multi-age learning communities. In these kehillot students work together to reach their personal goals. Teachers collaborate to craft curriculum and teaching practices that enrich learning and support individual needs.
I love KSA because I still have recess and I am in 6th grade! I love all my teachers because they are always there for me. We have amazing field trips, and my friends are beyond compare. If I didn’t love KSA I wouldn’t have stayed here for 7 years. These are just some of the reasons that I love my school. -Ethan, 6th grade
I love KSA because here, I can be a leader. -Rebecca, 8th grade
I love KSA because the focus of the teaching is around the kids, their needs, their goals and each child as a growing student and growing person. I love that I do not need to teach for a child to pass a test but rather that through each child’s passion, I can teach the skills necessary for him/her to succeed. -Renee Werber, 5th grade teacher

Jewish Education is about more than academic skills and content knowledge. It's about middot and Jewish values.
