Whole Child Learning and Raising The Academic Bar

Heilicher meets every child where they are and develops them into confident and skilled life-long learners. Through Jewish teaching and practice, students expand their spiritual selves and internalize these important values. Through the arts and music, students are inspired to engage with the world in creative ways.
