Frequently Asked Questions
When will the school open?
The school is now officially open and expanding into our second year of operation! Our first day of school for the new academic year is planned for Thursday, August 29, 2019.
What grades are included?
We are open to boys grades 1- 8 and girls grades 1- 6. Additional ages will be added each year. We also have plans to open a pre-school with the 2019-2020 academic year.
Is this school open only to boys? What about the girls?
Menachem Mendel Academy is thrilled to be expanding to add a girls division this year. The next phase of our long-term plan includes extending the ages of our school, as well as additional schools for children of all nations.

Is this a “special-ed” school?
No. While MMA considers ALL children to be special, and therefore all education should be special, this is not a “special education” school in the traditional sense of the world. MMA specializes in customized education for each and every student, including “gifted and talented students” as well as “normal and average” students. (It should be strongly noted that MMA does not consider ANY child to be normal or average, and we are only using this terminology for the purpose of traditional explanation.)
Where is the school located?

Who are the teachers?
We are extremely proud of our Dream Team of Teachers, Faculty, and Staff. We will continue to actively seek experienced and enthusiastic creative Jewish teachers with a passionate desire to innovate and the initiative to help us pioneer our new school system as we expand into both older and younger boys, as well as the girls schools. We are committed to reward our staff with excellent pay and a fantastic environment as part of our Core Values. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to submit a resume or request more information.
What is the annual tuition?
Tuition for the 2019-2020 school year is $25,000 per student, including most activities, plus all meals and snacks that will be freshly made from kosher, organic, plant-based ingredients. We have a commitment to turn no child away due to financial constraints. Please click here to read more about our tuition philosophy.
Are scholarships available?
Why are you including organic, plant-based food as part of your tuition?
Tuition will include all snacks and daily lunches that will be freshly made from kosher, organic, plant-based ingredients, because we understand the critical short and long-term effects that food has on all humans, especially children, specifically affecting their ability to learn and successfully manage their environment. This is merely one component in our Core Value of Holistic Happiness.
