Educational Philosophy

At Shaarei Torah of Richmond, each student’s individualized learning style is recognized. We focus on each student’s needs and carefully nurture her natural talents and her desire to learn. Classes are structured to encourage our students to work together, as well as independently. They learn to expand their abilities and interests. Above all, they learn to become active participants in the learning process.

We believe that in today’s modern world where students are faced with choices of cultures and ideologies, a comprehensive understanding of Torah Hashkafah is paramount.

Beyond the Classroom

Our students also pursue special interests and skills outside of the classroom. Many students enjoy participating in the student council, the annual play/production and volunteering throughout the community including with senior citizens and the physically challenged. Through extracurricular activities, students get to know each other better and share their talents and interests with the community.
