Welcome to our
virtual admissions office!

Since the coronavirus pandemic’s impact was first felt within our community, Bernard Zell families have shown strength, resilience and support for one another. This widespread demonstration of care for friends and neighbors will continue to serve us well as students and teachers as we prepare for a return to campus.
Below, you can explore detailed plans for how we’ll maintain health and safety at Bernard Zell in the 2020-2021 school year while still offering a high-quality Jewish and general studies education, a close look at our Early Childhood, Lower School and Middle School academics and how to apply this fall!


A second family. A second home. For students, for families and for alumni. As our students move through the world, they never lose sight of the lessons that shaped them for a lifetime. Below, explore community life, academics, reopening policies and begin the application process!

Take a Virtual Tour

The best way to understand what makes Bernard Zell unique is to see us in action during a virtual tour or a private, socially-distanced 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.
