Our mission is to ignite within our students a passion for learning and a commitment to translating ideas into meaningful action.
Through inquiry, close reading, and thoughtful debate across the academic disciplines, our students become independent learners and powerful communicators. They cultivate their Jewish identities through joyful prayer, exploration of the Torah’s wisdom, mastery of Hebrew, and participation in Jewish life. They engage, support, and challenge one another as members of a collaborative, caring community.
Schechter Manhattan graduates confidently go forth to meet the intellectual, social, and moral challenges that lie ahead, poised not only to do well in life, but also to do good in the world.
