SAR High School, a co-educational Modern Orthodox Jewish high school, is a community of learners dedicated to recognizing the unique needs and potential of each individual student. We strive to challenge every learner to move beyond his or her comfortable limits, in academic, religious, social and co-curricular areas. SAR encourage students to probe and engage the world with humility and openness to God’s creations, and to be immersed in a culture of learning and service as participants in the Grand Conversation between Torah and the world. Finally, we seek to shape a school environment where the performance of mitzvot inspires respect, obligation and aspiration. This is the mission of our high school.
SAR is interested in attracting students who want to be participants in our mission- driven school, and are committed to developing their character, learning and observance as members of the Jewish people and citizens of a democratic society. Prospective students must be prepared to invest a significant amount of energy in both their general and Judaic studies program, to work collaboratively with other students, and welcome the opportunity to form close relationships with teachers and other staff members. In addition, prospective students should demonstrate behavior indicating their emotional readiness for high school studies and activities. Finally, SAR is interested in attracting students involved in community service activities that demonstrate their commitment to the betterment of the Jewish community and the world.
SAR recognizes that our students want to broaden their social, religious and academic peer group when entering high school. Therefore, we look to assemble a student body comprised both of SAR Academy graduates and students from other Jewish day schools located all over the tri-state area.
