The Tucson Hebrew Academy Mission

Our Mission


The Tucson Hebrew Academy is our community Jewish Day School, providing exemplary education through stimulating, rigorous academics, inspired Jewish values, and an engaged, supportive community.


What We Do


THA develops students who are highly skilled, creative and critical thinkers with a spirited love of learning and a strong Jewish identity.


Core Values


Children We love our students and are committed to their growth and success. Developmentally appropriate, research-based teaching strategies and curricula are fundamentals. We educate the whole child at THA, balancing a rigorous academic program with Jewish values and experiences in the fine and performing arts, PE, technology, and more.

Commitment to Excellence High expectations of students, staff, and faculty are fundamental to our philosophy and approach. We strive to ensure our graduates are prepared to excel in Tucson’s most challenging high schools.

Community We are a strong, warm and welcoming community. We ensure that all members of our school family are embraced and have a home at THA. Parent involvement is a hallmark of THA. Partnerships with local Jewish organizations and synagogues, and the greater community of Tucson, are critical components of our program.

Living Judaism Through study, prayer, Hebrew and celebrations of our traditions and heritage, the joy and pride of living Judaism thrives here. Our students obtain a strong moral compass, deep understanding of their roots, and the knowledge and inspiration for living a Jewish life and contributing to Jewish civilization.

Supporting Israel We support Israel and foster close relationships with Israeli students and educators.

Tikkun Olam Healing the world is a central tenet of our belief system. Through a range of strategies including service learning opportunities at school and in the community, our students both understand and enact this essential value of making the world a better place.
