Campus Highlights

Situated on a beautifully landscaped 5.5 acre campus in New Milford, NJ — complete with a Reggio Emilia inspired Early Childhood playground, an Organic Teaching Garden and the Cushmaro Field of Dreams — Schechter Bergen’s central location makes it attractive to students from more than 50 different communities throughout New York City and Bergen, Hudson, and Rockland Counties. Schechter is only nine miles from the George Washington Bridge, making it accessible to families in Manhattan and the Riverdale neighborhood of the Bronx. Schechter is accredited by the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools (NJAIS).


Thanks to the work of a group of visionary pioneers in 1973-74, the Solomon Schechter Day School of Bergen County opened its doors. From its beginning as a school of 20 students and seven faculty members, Schechter Bergen has grown into a vibrant center of Jewish learning comprising more than 400 students and 100 faculty and staff members. Our facilities have also grown from our initial home in the Teaneck Jewish Center to our exceptional 5.5 acre campus, the Frank Sadinoff Educational Center in New Milford.

What started as the dream of a few has become a wonderful reality for the many students, parents, and faculty who are fortunate enough to call the Solomon Schechter Day School of Bergen County “our school community.”
