What is your organization's mission?
At Luria Academy of Brooklyn, we are inspiring a new generation of leaders, creators, thinkers and engaged citizens. Through our individualized approach to learning and commitment to diversity as a core value, our students graduate with a deep love of learning, strong sense of self, and a passion to repair a fractured world. Luria is a progressive interpretation of the yeshiva day school. Our commitment to Jewish values, intensive text study, and Hebrew language immersion gives children deep roots. Through our uniquely integrated curriculum and Montessori-based materials, we foster exploration and discovery, developing creative, critical and analytical thinkers. By challenging students at their own individual level and nurturing social-emotional growth, our exceptional faculty guides each child towards academic excellence and their true potential. We embrace our religious and educational differences and teach our students to engage in respectful dialogue, creating a cultural mosaic reflective of our community and the world.

What activities do you offer?
Montessori methodology provides an integrated model for learning life skills and social skills while students learn math, science, writing and reading. There is a natural progression that allows each individual student to challenge themselves continuously. Our students learn to be intentional, patient and self-reflective. They make choices and take responsibility for their own learning and their materials.

How would you describe your community?
Our approach to Judaics gives students the tools and skills they need to be thoughtful and sophisticated text learners, while at the same time exploring their personal relationship to living a Jewish life. Ours is a diverse community unlike any other Jewish day school. Children come to us from Williamsburg, Clinton Hill, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Park Slope, Flatbush, and even from Manhattan. Students learn together, asking questions of one another and working their way through differences, to a place of deep understanding and respect.
