Yeshivat Kadimah High School is an Orthodox Yeshiva High School that is reinventing the classroom with a 21st century approach to Jewish education. Located in St. Louis, Missouri, Yeshivat Kadimah’s highly individualized program incorporates traditional and interactive resources, enriched by real world experiences outside the classroom.
Established in June 2013, our school is the result of many community members’ generosity and their shared vision. Its family feel makes it more than just a place to learn; it provides a warm and encouraging environment for all of its students to grow and develop emotionally, academically and spiritually. It shares the strongest Jewish values, supported by the best of the academic world and modern technology. Kadimah is constantly moving forward in today’s fast-paced, ever-changing world.
Our rigorous, college preparatory program emphasizes excellence in both general and Judaic studies, while the supportive and nurturing atmosphere fosters both personal and intellectual development. Kadimah seeks to spark in our students a love for the study of Torah and the practice of Judaism, and to provide them with the tools and inspiration for life-long learning along with a deep devotion to both the Jewish People (עם ישראל) and the State of Israel (מדינת ישראל).
- Kadimah means “forward.” Though rooted in tradition, Yeshivat Kadimah utilizes innovative techniques and technologies to reinvent the Orthodox Jewish classroom.
- Hebrew language is a strong component of the curriculum, reflecting its importance both as a vehicle to understanding classic Jewish texts, as well as recognizing its unique role in the revitalization of the modern State of Israel.
- Yeshivat Kadimah strives to successfully develop outstanding Bnei and Bnot Torah who live full, meaningful, and productive Jewish lives.
- Open to the entire community, Yeshivat Kadimah is devoted to Ahavat Yisrael, love for all Jews, and emphasizes respect for one another.
Our experienced faculty and staff are committed to each student, and to personalizing the Kadimah experience so that each of them receives, and contributes, according to their personal goals and talents. Our “Friday Experiences” ensure the real-life connection of studies to the community, and ground our studies in action.
Yeshivat Kadimah High School students are committed to their Judaism and to each other; they are students who are inspired, and who inspire.
