Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy is a community school founded by Chabad and open to all Jewish students, Preschool through eighth grade. The school provides an excellent Judaic and secular education in an atmosphere of warmth and enthusiasm, to help students develop into responsible and capable leaders with an enduring love of Judaism. With this foundation, graduates are well prepared with the skills to continue their education at the institution of their choice. The school recognizes the importance of dedicated faculty and parents working together to imbue students with Torah values, community responsibility, and a love of Israel.


The uniqueness of every child is underscored with the axiom "Chanoch L'Na'ar Al Pi Darko" - "Educate your child according to his/her way." Our teachers recognize that each child has his or her own unique needs, interests, and passions. Hence, our teachers prepare their lessons following Dr. Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences, which enables each child to learn, explore, and discover in ways harmonious to his or her own unique mind. By tapping into each child's individual talents, we build upon each child's strengths.


Thank you very much for making this "virtual homecoming" to your alma mater. Whether you graduated from New Haven Hebrew Day School, Boys Torah High School, Bais Chana Academy High School for Girls, or Southern Connecticut Hebrew Academy, we are all very happy to welcome you back! The journeys you have embarked upon since moving on from our schools are as diverse and unique as each one of our students has been for seventy years! Some of you stayed close to your roots in New Haven, building your lives, professions, and families in the community which brought you to our schools in the first place.
