The Wise Schools know that all students deserve the opportunity to learn deeply, be creative, experience wholeness in order to make great happen in the world. This is even more important using a Judaic lens. A Wise School graduate feels a strong connection to the State of Israel, our history, holidays and rituals, and an obligation to improve their community.

Learn today. Lead tomorrow. At VBSDS, Judaism roots all that we learn and teach. Being Jewish means access to thousands of years of wisdom while interpreting the tradition to innovate for tomorrow. Our students learn today to lead tomorrow and they are more successful because of the pride they develop in their Jewish heritage and the Jewish imperative upon them that they can make a difference starting today! Ancient Torah speaks its voice and we answer its call to learn and lead, today and tomorrow.

By transmitting the Jewish tradition to a new generation, Kadima Day School seeks to transform received values, wisdom, and practices into the building blocks of lifelong Jewish meaning. We explicitly consider a love of Israel and the Jewish people, moral action, and social responsibility to be among the core dispositions and behaviors that are the hallmark of a Jewishly educated Kadima graduate.
