There are many options and pathways for a Jewish child’s education. Making a decision about where to educate your child means clarifying your values and priorities, and understanding the needs of your particular child.
Jewish day schools seek to embrace the whole child and the whole family. With a blend of secular and Jewish education, Jewish day schools prepare students to be competitive while illuminating our rich culture and teachings as a guide to inform our present and our future.
If you want your child to be part of a supportive and thoughtful community, and you too want to be part of a supportive community that is committed to raising children who are kind, generous and guided by values, consider Jewish day school!
If you want your child to have a strong sense of self, an understanding of his or her heritage and history, consider Jewish day school.
If you want your child to live the simple rhythms of his day and his year in a way that is inimitably and magnificently Jewish, consider Jewish day school.
If you want a secular and Jewish education that is substantive and relevant to the modern life you live, consider Jewish day school.
If you want your home to be one that builds on the wisdom and grandeur of the texts that have guided our people through centuries, and for your children to be able to see ancient Jewish texts as guides for their own lives, consider Jewish day school.
If you want your child to develop a sense of awe and wonder, to appreciate the beauty of the world and develop their own sense of responsibility to steward the natural world, our own creations and our community into the future, consider Jewish day school.**
The Samis Foundation is proud to support all of the Jewish day schools in the Seattle area. Please note: though the Foundation supports tuition assistance at each of Seattle’s Jewish day schools, the administration of any tuition assistance is through the schools themselves. Please contact the admissions director at each school for more information.
