HBHA Strategic Plan
The mission statement for Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy is: To prepare our students for fulfilling lives as Jews and as honorable, contributing citizens.
Founded in 1966 through the efforts of a group of dedicated parents who believed a Jewish day school education was vital for their children, HBHA opened its doors with 33 students in rented facilities at Congregation Ohev Sholom. Today HBHA features a K-12 school that serves 225 students each year.
HBHA board and administrative staff determined a five-year strategic plan was needed, based on the recommendation of the ISACS Accreditation organization in 2012. Our newest Strategic Plan follows on the heels of the previous five-year strategic plan, which was implemented in 2008.

Goal of the Strategic Planning Process
The overarching goal of the Strategic Plan is to shape HBHA into a thriving, innovative Jewish educational institution that can prosper beyond any single programmatic idea, funding source or leadership.
Our Commitment to the Students and Our Community
HBHA administrative staff is assigned to various portions of the work outlined in the Strategic Plan. While some of these tactics are already underway, HBHA Administrative staff will work together – within the confines stipulated by the approved Strategic Plan – to prioritize overall goals and receive assignments.
HBHA Administration and the HBHA Board of Trustees is committed to ensuring that a thriving K-12 Jewish day school continues to contribute to Jewish life in Kansas City as well as the broader Kansas City community.
