Elementary at Gray Academy

The most important people in a child’s life are those who surround them with love and a sense of community. The environment in which a child learns is just as, if not more, important than the material they are learning.

At Gray Academy, the elementary years are where students are encouraged to learn about themselves. It’s a time of self-discovery where students begin to create their own identities and follow their own paths. We work together with parents to give our students the best education possible.

Children spend countless hours at school surrounded by people they learn from, whether it be their teachers, their classmates, or themselves.  No question a student has, whether its related to the subject they’re learning or anything else they may think of, is too big or too small to be asked.

The elementary day is split between general and Judaic studies, but the values-based approach to education takes place all day. Students learn the traditional subjects such as math, science, English language arts, social studies, art, and music, and Judaic studies like T’filah, Tanach, Hebrew, Israel and Jewish history. They also learn skills that set them up for life such as critical thinking, community, Tikun Olam (repairing the world), and Chesed (kindness).
