The H.F. Epstein Hebrew Academy is a child-centered Orthodox Jewish day school, dedicated to educating Jewish children in Torah and general studies and nurturing children’s love for Israel and the Jewish people. Children are taught to think critically, to reason and to excel in all the academic disciplines; the school also models lessons in middot (character building) and chesed (caring for each other).

The Academy, the first Jewish day school in Missouri, has been pioneering the field of Jewish education in the St. Louis area since 1943. Academy graduates become Torah scholars, educators and leaders in the Jewish community as well as active professionals in the arts, sciences, business, law and government. The school is accredited by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) and is associated with the Torah U’Mesorah network of schools (the National Association of Hebrew Day Schools) and Yeshiva University’s Institute for University School Partnership.

Our Mission: The H.F. Epstein Hebrew is an Orthodox Day School, disciplined and inspired by Torah, dedicated to the Jewish People and the State of Israel. Committed to excellence in religious and general studies, the school seeks to educate Jewish children in a creative, progressive and nurturing environment.
