Why a Jewish Day School

HBHA is a close-knit community which has best been described as family. While immersing themselves into dual-language curricula, with General and Jewish/Hebrew Studies, students build their identities, solidify their Jewish values and become leaders within their Jewish and general communities.

Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy is the only school in Kansas City to offer an immersive Jewish environment. The value of a Jewish education transcends the content our students learn in the classroom. While day school education provides robust opportunities for classroom learning in Hebrew and Jewish Studies, the less formal aspects of education and the school's culture bring classroom lessons to life. HBHA fosters confidence and pride in one’s Jewish identity, enables deep peer relationships with Jewish students from across the religious spectrum, and teaches fluency in Jewish tradition and culture through vibrant experiential learning.

HBHA believe strongly in creating an atmosphere to give our students the very best. The Profile of Graduate gives families a better idea of the important skills and values our faculty and staff strive to instill in our students.
