After months of careful planning, two highly regarded private Jewish schools in Stamford have announced their merger.
The Boards of Trustees of Bi-Cultural Day School, a national pre-K through grade 8 Blue Ribbon School, and the acclaimed Jewish High School of Connecticut, recently joined forces to create one comprehensive academic institution that will provide students with a unique continuum of education.
The newly formed Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy of Connecticut — the only school of its kind in Connecticut— opened its doors this fall. At least initially, each school will continue to operate at its present location.
The new Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy reflects the shared missions and values of its two core schools, both of which are comprised of vibrant student bodies steeped in Torah values and a love of Israel; dynamic, evolving and innovative curriculums; reputations for academic excellence; legacies of service to community; and passions for passing on the beauty of our Jewish heritage.
The merger also lays a solid foundation for the future of Connecticut’s Jewish community by instilling in families considering a move to the area the confidence that their children will have convenient access to a topquality, well-rounded education.
