In May of 1992, in response to the need for continued quality education for its own graduates, as well as students throughout Nassau, Queens and Brooklyn, the Hebrew Academy of Long Beach acquired the magnificent campus of the former Lawrence Country Day School in Hewlett Bay Park. Thus, the Yeshiva High School for Girls at Hewlett Bay Park was created and, in 1994 was dedicated as the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls. Accredited by the N.Y. State Board of Regents and the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, the Stella K. Abraham High School provides academic excellence in both Limudei Kodesh and General Studies and, in consonance with the HALB tradition, seeks to inculcate its students with a love for and commitment to Am Yisrael, Torat Yisrael and Medinat Yisrael.
At SKA, we have created a warm, supportive and friendly atmosphere where each student is a valuable asset. A commitment to small classes affords our students personal attention and the opportunity to develop close relationships with their administrators, teachers, rebbeim, staff, alumnae mentors and each other.
In our focus on the development of the “whole person,” we encourage our students to actualize their potential by discovering and nurturing their unique, individual talents and strengths. A full array of specialized personnel is available to students for their personal, religious and academic growth and to help students realize their dreams. Our team of social workers and school psychologists is available daily to assist students in navigating the joys and challenges of an ever-changing, fast-paced world with individual and group meetings, workshops, and parent-daughter evening events.
Each grade has their own faculty grade level advisors, as well as alumnae madrichot to serve as mentors and role models.
