        Now Accepting Applications for 2021-2022!

        Now more than seven weeks into this incredibly atypical school year, we’re taking a moment to pause and reflect on how far we’ve come and all that we’ve accomplished since our world first changed. With the unbelievable support of parents, teachers, students and staff, the Bernard Zell community has come together in amazing ways to reinvent how we teach while still offering an education deeply rooted in Jewish values.
        What we’ve learned is that no matter if we’re online or in-person, the strength and quality of a Bernard Zell education remain the same. We're already making plans to welcome new families—at all grade levels—to our community for the 2021-2022 school year. Click below to learn more about what makes Bernard Zell so special.
