Mission & Philosophy


Akiba Yavneh Academy (AYA) is a Modern Orthodox, co-ed, early childhood through 12th grade college-preparatory school dedicated to providing an academically excellent and values-based General and Judaic education to Jewish students of all backgrounds to inspire a lifelong love of Torah, higher learning, and the State of Israel.


At Akiba Yavneh Academy we strive to educate the whole child by recognizing the unique potential of each student, fostering a culture of respect and kindness, and encouraging a sense of community in our school. We pursue excellence with a rigorous dual curriculum while celebrating the diversity in our community of learners by providing innovative and differentiated learning opportunities, as school resources allow, to address each student’s developmental needs. Our students achieve distinction in leading universities and yeshivot after graduating AYA.
