Latest update: January 3rd, 2012
Last week, Torah Academy of Boca Raton announced its intent to purchase a 2.5 acre campus just 300 yards from the current facility. Three years ago, the enrollment stood at 124 students, including early childhood through fifth grade. Today, that same campus is being stretched to the maximum in order to accommodate the current enrollment of 204 students.
Due to the explosive growth of the Boca Raton community, the school is expanding its program incrementally to include a middle school. By 2014, the program will be servicing children from early childhood through eighth grade. Rabbi Reuven Feinberg, rosh yeshiva and dean of Torah Academy explained, “This expansion will help the yeshiva educate a greater number of Jewish students thirsting for Torah.”
The new property consists of over 17,000 sq. ft. of classroom and office space. It is comprised of two buildings, three large, well-equipped playgrounds, some of which have sun shades, a pool with a pool house, and ample parking.
“This is indeed an exciting time at Torah Academy,” said Rabbi Feinberg. “We look forward to purchasing this property and occupying it in time for the 2012-13 school year.”
