Tour Bernard Zell!

The best way to understand what makes Bernard Zell unique is to see us in action during a tour. You’ll learn firsthand how Jewish life and study infuses our classrooms and activities and you’ll hear directly from students and alumni how Bernard Zell has enriched their lives.
This year, we are offering virtual tours and socially-distanced opportunities to see the school when classes are not in session. Please contact us at admissions@bernardzell.org to schedule your tour or if you have any questions. 
We are thrilled that you are interested in joining the Bernard Zell community. To ensure you don't miss any important steps in the admissions process, please find below key deadlines, notifications and event dates for the 2022-2023 admissions season.
