Choosing a school for your child is a significant decision
We want to be sure that Tehiyah feels like a good fit, that the community reflects your family’s values, and that our academic program will meet your child’s needs and maximize his/her potential.
It is important that you spend as much time as needed visiting the school, talking to community members, getting to know Tehiyah, and having all your questions answered.
Tehiyah’s admissions process will give you an opportunity to learn about the school, tour the facilities and classrooms, visit with the teachers, and learn about our effective and individualized approach to education.
You are welcome to spend additional time on campus, observing classrooms and students at play, talking with faculty and staff, and asking lots of questions.
As a Jewish Community Day School, Tehiyah adheres to the principle of pluralism in both Jewish and American living and respects the customs and traditions of all students.
We are not affiliated with any denomination or movement, and welcome the diversity of Jewish experience and tradition. We seek a diverse student body; admission is open to all students regardless of race, color, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation, nationality or ethnic origin. Students are accepted in kindergarten through grade eight with the largest numbers entering in kindergarten, sixth and seventh grades.
Our community includes students with different learning styles as well as physical disability. All family structures including traditional nuclear, blended, single parent, gay/lesbian and adopted celebrate the diversity of our population. The School encourages applications from underrepresented groups and welcomes all inquiries.
Admission is based on results of a written application, previous school records, teacher recommendations, and a class visit. The application process begins each fall for the next school year for all grade levels. Candidates are urged to apply early. Decisions are made in March, with acceptances being offered after that time on a space-available basis.
