Preschool

Kindergarten at HMJDS is much more than coloring, practicing handwriting, planting seeds, and counting blocks. We balance developmental growth in an environment where we can provide both rigor and nurture. Our thorough admissions process provides a great deal of information about our incoming students.

High School & College Prep

If a school can be measured by the success of its graduates, Heilicher has clearly earned its outstanding reputation. Our graduates represent a diverse group of people who are life-long learners, creative thinkers, and leaders engaged in strengthening their communities in a fast-changing world.


Jewish Studies

The Heilicher Jewish Studies program strives to inspire young adults to take joy and pride in their Jewish identities, approach Torah and the study of all Jewish text rigorously and analytically, and commit themselves to active Tikkun Olam/תיקון עולם/Repairing the World.


Embracing Special Needs

Our Resource Team consists of our Student Services Coordinator, Principal, School Counselor, and Learning Specialists. Best practice in Special Education is to provide learning in the least restrictive environment.
