Life & Legacy

Life and LegacyStudents enrolled in Strelitz International Academy are intellectually curious, self-disciplined, and independent thinkers. Established in 1955 as the only pluralistic Jewish community day school in Hampton Roads, we provide high quality, integrated Judaic and general studies education that establishes a strong foundation for lifelong learning in a dynamic, supportive, and enriching Jewish environment.  All families are welcomed, regardless of their denomination or level of observance.  SIA serves as entry points for engaged families to connect within the Jewish community and for many young parents to reunite with their Jewish roots.  Our Jewish community is stronger because of SIA.

Our students are involved in a holistic community where they are engaged in the world around them. They emerge from our program, accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools, as better students, better people, and better citizens because of their enriching experience that builds confidence, critical thinking skills, and strong verbal skills.  They are happy, respectful and devoted to their education because of the close student-teacher relationship, small class size and differentiated learning that takes place in the classes.

Support Jewish education for tomorrow’s generation, by leaving your Jewish legacy today!
