Why Give?

Schechter continues to flourish with a unique blend of Jewish tradition and innovation.
We are committed to nurturing the whole child, and providing a vigorous dual curriculum with rich opportunities for deep learning, both in General and Judaic studies. Our students grow into confident, intellectually inquisitive and compassionate adults who become future globally minded Jewish leaders.

We do not, however, achieve this alone. In order to sustain our high level of excellence and in order to continue to grow and improve, we ask for the support of our entire Kehillah — parents, alumni, grandparents and friends.

When you donate to our school, you help secure the resources needed to implement our mission in the lives of our students. Your generosity and partnership are deeply appreciated.
