Welcome to Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy’s website. Established in 1966, HBHA is Kansas City’s only Jewish community day school. HBHA offers an exemplary general and Jewish education to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade. We celebrate the strength of pluralism and the power of diversity, while challenging students to think critically, creatively and independently.
Connecting the past. Engaging the present. Creating the future.
Students at HBHA are active and engaged participants in their education. Our accomplished and caring staff is dedicated to preparing students for life-long learning based on Jewish values, with connections to the past and care about the future. Our students can pursue their passions, whether in academics, the arts or on the athletic fields. HBHA opens its doors to a wide range of children, from all walks of Judaism, allowing our students to learn not only from the teachers, but each other.
As you browse through our site, you will see HBHA’s commitment to excellence in education in a values-based environment. I look forward to meeting you when you visit.
