Program Highlights

  • Ramaz provides a rigorous academic program that includes both Judaic and general studies classes integrated throughout the school day.

  • Every day begins with davening and afternoon classes stop for mincha each afternoon. All grades have their own minyan and we offer a daily a Sephardic minyan and a monthly Women’s Tefillah group.

  • Judaic studies include Hebrew language, Talmud, and Tanakh, and a “Judaism” course exploring halachic and hashkafic issues in our modern world.

  • General studies include English, history, math and science, and a choice of a foreign language.

  • Members of our Guidance Team and Learning Center specialists are available to support the social, emotional, and academic needs of every student.

  • Grade-wide Shabbatonim provide students with an opportunity to bond with their friends and strengthen relationships with teachers.

  • Each spring, we take an emotional journey through modern Jewish history as we observe Yom Hashoah, Yom Hazikaron, and Yom Ha’atzmaut. Over just eight days, in quick succession, we remember, we mourn, we honor, and we celebrate.

  • New York City is as much a part of the classroom as any other subject studied. The museums, exhibits, and historical sites of New York complement and supplement our students’ regular classroom education.

  • Our interdisciplinary programs reinforce the concept of an integrated curriculum between various subjects in Judaic and general studies. The annual grade-wide programs combine the talents and knowledge-base of our own faculty alongside outside experts, both scholars and laypersons, and take advantage of relevant cultural opportunities in New York City. Each program caters specifically to the developmental needs of each grade on topics including science and religion, religion and law, Zionism, and the history of the Jewish Book.

  • Chesed defines our culture and animates all we do; we’ve created a host of projects that allow the entire school to contribute to worthwhile causes. Students also have the opportunity to work on independent, long-term projects stemming from their interests.

  • The culmination of our students’ academic and spiritual journey is a 12th grade two-week trip to Poland and Israel, strengthening religious identity and connecting them with their families and classmates, while giving them a world perspective that shapes them for the rest of their lives.
