At Torah Academy, we aim to strengthen all areas of a child’s development. An important aspect of this goal is our co-curricular program. The following activities are specifically designed to encourage positive social and emotional development, as well as increase the children’s confidence and skills. Note that not all programs are offered every academic year.

  • Art
  • Music
  • Physical Education
  • Gardening
  • Chess
  • STEM

Torah Academy is also famous for our annual field trips, especially our apple-picking trip and beekeeper visits before Rosh Hashana, and hikes at nature preserves, walks in botanical gardens, and behind-the-scenes tours of local landmarks like the postal office or public library. We firmly believe that nothing teaches better than a hands-on, multisensory experience, and of course a little fresh air and fun only helps!
