Academics

Yavneh Academy’s dual curriculum is unrivaled among Dallas high schools. It combines the highest level of college preparatory courses with an unparalleled Judaic Studies program, and is carefully crafted to help maximize each student’s potential. Yavneh students are not only given the tools to help succeed in college life, but also to become leaders in their chosen professions and communities.

The school’s best-in-class faculty, when coupled with a remarkably low teacher-to-student ratio, allows the customization of each student’s curriculum. This individualized approach to education enables teachers to work closely with students to maximize his/her unique strengths and talents, ensuring each student is both nurtured and challenged with an ambitious curriculum.

At Yavneh, the school day is carefully crafted to promote a productive, college-like atmosphere, where students learn to balance their required courses with a wide array of extracurricular activities. This collegiate structure helps them master the art of time and life management, while also helping them define themselves through the critical high school years.

In support of our academic goals, Yavneh employs the latest technologies such as the My BackPack™  student/parent web portal that enables parents to view much of their child's current, and historical student-related information, including a class calendar, attendance, financial records, marking period grades and comments.
