A message from SSA Head of School, Steven Erdelyi

My philosophy as an educator is always to go above and beyond, whether in reference to academics, individual support, or health and safety. At Solomon Schechter Academy, our focus is to raise the level of excellence through enrichment, while assisting those students who may have fallen behind. The mental health and wellness of your children, which is top of mind.

When a teacher or member of the administration comes to me with an idea of a cutting-edge program or initiative to help our students, my goal is to say, “yes”! Tuition and government subsidies cover basic education, but the donations to our Annual Campaign pay for the education we want our students to have, and allow me to say “yes” more often to the projects that help our students.

We have recently embarked on an ambitious campaign to improve the facilities at SSA, including new playgrounds at both campuses, LED lighting, a brand new Main Campus gymnasium, and new, active learning classrooms featuring flexible seating. These investments will help our students grow mentally, physically, and academically.

With your support, we can continue to achieve our goals and be there for your children and grandchildren. I thank you in advance for your gifts to the SSA Children’s Foundation, which allow us to lead the way for the next generation.
