Message from the Head of School
We are a school born out of the 2019 merger of Akiba and Yavneh. Our community is bonded by the manner in which we honor traditions, pursue excellence and look to the future with a strong sense of responsibility and empathy for Klal Yisrael and society as a whole.
Everything we do at Akiba Yavneh Academy (AYA) we do to inspire a lifelong love of Torah, higher learning and the state of Israel. We achieve this by providing an academically excellent, values-based General and Judaic education to Jewish students of all backgrounds. We are "The" early childhood through twelfth grade, coed, Modern Orthodox academy of Dallas!
In a developmentally appropriate manner, our curriculum marries lessons from the past, through the study of Torah, with an innovative eye to the future. Our goal is to meet each student where they are and guide and support them to reach new levels of individual excellence. Our graduates are engaged, empathetic, intellectuals in possession of strong moral compasses and a passion for making a positive difference in the world. They are routinely accepted to the finest colleges and universities in the country.
It is my honor to serve this community during this historic time at our academy. I encourage you to explore our website, visit our beautiful campus and get to know the people, place and program of Akiba Yavneh Academy.
All the best,
Christopher A. Gorycki
Interim Head of School
