Hebrew Academy of the Capital District is a diverse and inclusive school community. Our teachers, students, and parents come from a variety of Jewish backgrounds with varying practices and traditions. We respect and value our diversity as we work together to foster a lifetime connection to the Jewish people.

  • Bet Shraga is where we were taught to love learning and Judaism. Now that our daughter is there, it feels like we've come home. Dan & Aliza Scher, Alumni, Current Parents

Our teachers are experienced, skilled educators who are experts in their respective areas and who are devoted to our students and to our school. Our dual curriculum in general and Judaic studies is delivered in multiage classrooms in which the child is the focus. Our teachers are dedicated to providing each student with instruction tailored to meet individual strengths and needs.

  • Every day, I see students cooperating and learning from each other across grade levels. Over the course of working with my students for several years, I am able to understand their learning styles and needs. Each year, we are able to build upon what we already know. Tracey McQuay, Teacher, ELA/Social Studies/Math

We are committed to providing our students with the tools they need to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Technology is integrated into both our general and Judaic studies classes and supports group learning as well as individual research and presentations.

  • HACD is more than a school. What Hebrew Academy did for me, more than rigorous preparation, was an instill in me a set of guiding principles for living.  Noah Levine, Class of '11.

We offer rich athletic and co-curricular programming with opportunities to explore music, art, drama, and mathematics. Our annual school play is a highly anticipated event, and our Math Counts and Olympics of the Visual Arts teams make us proud.
