Mission & Philosophy

"A place of joy” is a phrase we often hear used to describe HBHA -- from students, parents, and teachers -- and we would like to share that experience with you.

Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy is a K-12 independent community Jewish day school in the heart of the midwest serving the Greater Kansas City Jewish community for more than 50 years. We work in partnership with our parents and students to support the emotional, spiritual, academic, and physical growth of our students. As a school, we are dedicated to providing a nurturing, collaborative, and - most important - joy-filled Jewish environment where students can grow into their best selves.

We live by our core values to provide the best for our students, including a strong academic foundation with individualized attention, all emanating from Jewish values.
Founded in 1966, Hyman Brand Hebrew Academy’s mission is to prepare students for fulfilling lives as Jews and as honorable and contributing citizens.
