Bernard Zell 2020 is built on five Strategic Priorities.

THINK OF THEM AS THE PILLARS FOR HOW WE ARE BUILDING THE FUTURE.

Bernard Zell is an independent Jewish day school for the 21st century where academic purpose, collaborative learning and a deep commitment to humanity develop engaged, confident learners and compassionate leaders for a stronger, more vibrant community and world.
The strategic plan is a road map - no, a GPS - for how our school can continue to achieve its highest aspirations. For the next few years, we are going to focus on doing the kind of work that will strengthen our foundation and catapult us into the future.
70 years is what we call a good start. How do we use more than 70 years of outstanding results, institutional impact and the depth of our Jewish community?
Our legacy is a cornerstone. We honor it. Draw strength from it. Respect it. Yet, our 70 years is actually a challenge to our school community: What do we need to do today that will allow our school to thrive and endure for another 70 years as we redefine Jewish education in America?
Our strategic plan answers the call. And reaffirms our commitment to this extraordinary school.
