Hebrew Public is building the Hebrew public charter school movement in America. Created in 2009, Hebrew Public (formerly Hebrew Charter School Center) helps to launch and sustain schools around the country. Our network’s schools provide a robust academic program that immerses students in the Modern Hebrew language, teaches about the history and culture of Israel and its immigrant communities, and emphasizes students’ commitments to each other, to their communities, and to the world.
Our History (Briefly)
Growth of the Network
Our vision is to create dozens of excellent schools across the United States, serving tens of thousands of students. We started small in 2009 with our first elementary school, Hebrew Language Academy in Brooklyn, which in its first year served 150 students. We have had an eleven-fold growth in the six years since then, serving more than 1,700 students in seven elementary schools in four states and the District of Columbia, and two new middle schools. To continue that pace of growth requires an all-hands-on-deck effort from our staff, community partners and leaders, and a growing number of supporters.
