Exploring Strelitz International Academy

Welcome to the Strelitz International Academy! We are excited to share the Strelitz experience with you. As an IB Candidate School, our program is designed to promote inquiry-based learning starting from the infant program through to our empowered fifth-grade leaders.

What does it mean to be a Strelitz student?

  • Enriching the life of the whole child in collaboration with families and the greater community.
  • Promoting a social and global consciousness that encompasses profound respect for all humanity within a dynamic Jewish environment.
  • Ensuring that all students know how to learn, think critically, form hypotheses, present an argument, and analyze the world around them.
  • Providing a strong foundation equipping our students for lifelong curiosity, discovery, leadership, and service.

An integral component of our school is the relationships built between students, parents, teachers and the greater community. The foundation of our school community is our core values of Repairing the World, Respect, Love of Learning and Community. These values are upheld by all of our constituents creating a system of shared beliefs. It is truly a privilege to be part of a community of parents, teachers, and students who care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.

Graduates of SIA are critical thinkers, confident leaders, respectful communicators and caring collaborators who are good citizens of our school and the greater community. Our graduates are prepared to thrive in the most competitive middle schools locally and beyond. I encourage you to EXPLORE our website and gain a sense of our community and academic program.

On behalf of our faculty, staff and administration, thank you for visiting the Strelitz International Academy website.
