We’re the “full package”
Schechter Westchester is an independent, K-12, college-preparatory Jewish day school, cultivating intellectual rigor, innovative thinking, and strong community spirit — assets that set our students apart as learners and leaders. Our integrated academic curriculum emphasizes critical inquiry throughout, immersing students daily in the nurturing context of their Jewish tradition and identity. With a full array of extracurricular opportunities, from athletics to arts to community service initiatives, Schechter Westchester students thrive both inside and outside the classroom.
Our students build strong connections from grades K-12, extending well beyond graduation, while parents build long-lasting friendships as well.
With a rigorous integrated curriculum, embracing the emerging technologies of tomorrow, our educational experience rivals the top public and independent schools in the region.
Research confirms, learning to do the right thing with the right attitude not only makes your child a mensch, but also leads to stronger academic performance.
Imagine your family and a life in Westchester
Located on two idyllic campuses in the heart of Westchester County — and easily accessible from New York City, Rockland, southwestern Connecticut, and northern New Jersey — Schechter Westchester offers state-of-the-art facilities and an environment that promotes comprehensive, cross-curricular learning among all of our students. Whether in the classroom or the science lab, on the playing field or the stage, our remarkable and inclusive community provides a place where young people are engaged as they learn and feel supported as they grow.
In addition to Schechter Westchester, families can also benefit from:
Westchester County offers a wide range of residential communities with a vast array of housing options. From White Plains, to Bedford, to the River Towns, the county’s cities, towns, and villages are socioeconomically diverse and range from urban to suburban to rural. Each also offers its own unique flavor — with state and county parks, historic landmarks, theaters, and museums, there is something in Westchester for everyone.
With a Jewish community of more than 150,000, Westchester has synagogues of every stripe and affiliation, as well as active JCCs, chesed groups, and Israel organizations. From UJA to chavurot to Jewish basketball leagues, Jewishly speaking, Westchester has it all.
While some Westchester residents work locally, many commute into Manhattan on one of Metro-North’s three rail lines. On average, the drive to New York City is only 40 minutes, and not only is it easy to get to the City, but Westchester is also an easy drive to New Jersey, Rockland, Long Island, and into New England.
