Mission Statement

Sha’arei Bina is an Orthodox Jewish Girls School whose goal is to integrate an extensive Judaic Studies program with a challenging college preparatory curriculum.

Sha’arei Bina provides a dynamic, Jewish education that fosters rigorous intellectual discipline, spiritual connection, an abiding love for Torah and unwavering commitment to its mitzvot and values.

Sha’arei Bina provides a challenging curriculum in general studies according to the highest educational standards as a complement to and enhancement of Torah study. By creating a climate of active intellectual inquiry in both disciplines, Sha’arei Bina encourages exploration and appreciation of the world and its offerings.

Sha’arei Bina ultimately will conduct Judaic Studies in the Hebrew language; thus our students will gain proficiency and deep feelings for the language of our ancestors, the language in which the Torah was transmitted, and the language spoken in Israel in our present day.

Sha’arei Bina is committed to the growth of the total Torah personality. This is accomplished by emphasizing the responsibility of each Jew toward Hashem and to all humanity. Sha’arei Bina infuses in its students a love of Eretz Yisrael, Am Yisrael, and Torat Yisrael.

Sha’arei Bina believes that the creation of the State of Israel is one of the seminal events in Jewish history. Recognizing the significance of the State and its national institutions, we seek to instill in our students an attachment to the State of Israel and its people as well as a sense of responsibility for their welfare. To this end, our Ivrit classes emphasize modern Hebrew and Yediat Ha’aretz.

Sha’arei Bina prepares its students to pursue their Judaic and general studies at challenging institutions of higher learning and be lifelong learners. Sha’arei Bina provides the foundation for its students to mature as committed Jews and to become role models who will ultimately fill leadership roles within the Jewish and global communities.
