We’re at the very core of the Big Apple.

Stroll around Lincoln Center, Central Park, and Columbus Circle. Learn about nature at the Museum of Natural History. Experience Shabbos on the Upper West Side. 

Not just well-educated, well-rounded

On our state-of-the-art, technologically-friendly campus (complete with a library, two science laboratories, computer labs, and an art studio), learning isn’t confined to the classroom. With world-class cultural institutions such as Carnegie Hall and the New York Philharmonic practically right next door, students have the advantage of rounding out their education with cultural experiences. Our central location allows our students to take advantage of the rich cultural and intellectual resources Manhattan has to offer. 

There’s something for everyone in New York City: Whether you love a good shiur, visiting museums, or attending arts performances, you’ll find that our location provides access to all of your varied interests. The city is an art exhibit, a living history museum, a sociology lesson, and a treasury of architectural diversity. Our beautiful facility on the Upper West Side of Manhattan reflects our attitude toward education: Learning flourishes in casual conversations with faculty members and other peers, as well as exposure to one's surrounding culture. 

Home, safe home

We want you to feel safe, secure, and supported in your new home. While you’re exploring the city on your own, we’re busy making sure that all your needs are met. 

Our leadership and faculty are always accessible, and Rabbi Flaum and Rabbi Goldwasser are available to students for guidance or a friendly chat. Malkie Katz, our Student Residence Director, and Rachel Blaustein, our Assistant Director, go the extra mile to make sure you feel at home in your new “home away from home.”
