Mission Statement


The Mission of Lubavitcher Yeshiva Academy (LYA) is to provide and promote the highest quality Judaic and secular education to a diverse community of Jewish children. Our aim is to cultivate students to reach personal excellence, and to be responsible members of American society. Within a warm, safe and nurturing environment, our focus is to inspire a love for learning, develop academic and social skills, and foster responsibility in each individual child. 



LYA was founded on the principles of Chabad philosophy, which is a way of life that integrates the love of G‑d, intellectual knowledge and understanding of the Torah, and the appreciation of the uniqueness of every individual of the community. Our administration and staff implement this philosophy in all areas of Judaic and secular studies while fostering a supportive environment for all our students.

An LYA education stresses holistic growth in academic, spiritual, moral and social/emotional domains. Rigorous academics are pursued with a recognition that our students possess a variety of learning styles and abilities. Students are taught to apply academic lessons from their practical settings to their daily lives. Respect for each individual’s unique identity and talents forms the core of enhancing our students’ sense of self. Ethics and moral values are explicitly taught, modeled and practiced throughout the daily life of the school. Yeshiva teachers help our students realize that the Judaic and secular worlds are interconnected. Faculty strive to inspire and motivate each child to enjoy learning and accept challenges while stimulating critical thought processes. They also promote the students’ sense of responsibility for self and others by active community involvement.  Students are encouraged to analyze their learning experiences in order to assess personal strengths and areas for improvement.

By empowering the head, heart and soul, a Yeshiva education provides our students with knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to be successful and to become members of contemporary society.
