Welcome to the Upper School of Barrack Hebrew Academy

We encourage students to develop grit, resilience, personal integrity, self-confidence, and a strong moral compass. Our students experience outstanding secular academics in humanities, science, math, world languages, and Hebrew, as well as Jewish studies, each designed to challenge students. We offer eight major subjects; extensive arts, engineering, and music electives; and a robust co-curricular program. As they progress academically, their exploration of Jewish values helps them find balance and focus.

Barrack's upper school provides a comprehensive college preparatory program infused with timeless Jewish values. We challenge our students to identify their goals and teach them to apply their intellect and values to living a life of impact.


Students take courses in both secular and Jewish subjects as well as electives in areas of interest.

Learning is a dialogue—not a monologue—at Barrack. We are encouraged to think creatively and critically, to ask questions and problem solve. We are prepared to tackle whatever challenge might come our way.
