Torah Academy of Boca Raton as begun the new school year with growth and expansion. The school has experienced a 20 percent increase in enrollment over last year. Torah Academy, which opened its doors in 1999 with 18 children, now has an enrollment of 365 students.
In order to keep up with the high demand, the school’s dean, Rabbi Reuven Feinberg, has organized a large, well-trained staff that enables Torah Academy to educate a broad range of students with an all-encompassing curriculum. The school’s goal is to continue to exceed national and state standards in Jewish and secular studies while maintaining its focus on the individual learner.
“It remains a top priority of ours to fill our classrooms with teachers who specialize in their subject matter and create a passion for learning in our students,” said Rabbi Feinberg.
Torah Academy has also welcomed a new headmaster, Rabbi Rafi Draiman, who believes the concept of “building” encompasses his philosophy and approach to education: “At Torah Academy, we are building students, building scholars, building self-esteem, and building the skills and knowledge that lead to success and meaningful accomplishment.”
Rabbi Draiman is no stranger to personal accomplishment and extensive study. The Chicago native’s training and experience in the field of education is impressive: he holds a Masters in educational administration from Loyola University and principal certificates from the Harvard Graduate School Principals’ Institute, NYC Leadership Academy, and Jewish Leadership Institute. He has served as director of the Principal Training Institute at the Consortium of Jewish Day Schools and has mentored for the Azrieli Graduate School of Education at Yeshiva University. He has been a school administrator for many years, most recently at Yeshiva of South Shore in Hewlett, New York.
