Accreditation & Affiliations

Accreditation & Affiliations


Heschel is accredited by the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS), the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), and BJE: Builders of Jewish Education. We are in partnership with The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles. We are affiliated members of the Educational Records Bureau (ERB) and PRIZMAH.

During our most recent accreditation by a joint CAIS, WASC, and BJE visiting team, Heschel was specifically commended for its incredibly committed Board of Directors and the faculty's integral involvement in the creation of a comprehensive and developmentally appropriate curriculum serving students in grades TK through 8th. Heschel was awarded a full six year term of accreditation, which is the highest level of accreditation awarded by the associations.


Abraham Joshua Heschel Day School is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization governed by a Board of Directors.














"We are closer to God when we are asking questions than when we think we have the answers."
