Academics Overview

Personalized Attention for Your Child’s Success

Our students benefit from our small class size, and are taught by experienced, knowledgeable, nurturing individuals who help their students develop the skills needed to succeed not only in our academic program, but also in all that lies beyond their Beth Tfiloh years. Small class sizes allow our teachers to provide our students with personalized attention, on and to nurture their talents and strengths. Our teachers are focused on preparing their students for future success. Furthermore, our unparalleled individualized college guidance program ensures that 100% of BT seniors who apply to a four-year university get accepted to the one that is right for them.


Beth Tfiloh PreSchool celebrates and cultivates joy, discovery, and respect in our youngest students. Inspired by the world-renowned Reggio Emilia early childhood educational philosophy, our curriculum prepares children for Kindergarten by encouraging them to exercise their curiosity and stretch their imaginations as they explore the world around them.
