Epstein Hebrew Academy
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 chessed (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 Prizmah: Center for Jewish Day Schools.
In January of 2020, Epstein Hebrew Academy relocated to its current building, right in the heart of University City, continuing to build upon the tremendous legacy it established in its previous home. The move was followed by an official merger with Yeshivat Kadimah High School making EHA the only early childhood through high school educational institution in the Midwest.
