Welcome to the Hasten Hebrew Academy website. We are pleased that you are interested in our school. Founded in 1971, The Hasten Hebrew Academy of Indianapolis has a long history of providing a high quality education to students in early childhood through eighth grade. Our dual curriculum provides students with a challenging program in both secular and Judaic studies, yet with the flexibility to meet each child's needs.
A kaleidoscope of academic and cultural experiences, our school fosters a love for and pride in Jewish heritage and values. Judaic studies include Hebrew language immersion and Israeli culture, Biblical text in Torah and Prophets, Jewish history and Oral Law, prayers and holiday customs. Our superior General Studies curriculum, aligned with the Indiana state standards, emphasizes critical and creative thinking skills integrated into advanced reading, math and fine arts. Extracurricular programs include sports, music, chess, Spanish and more. The Early Childhood component features self contained classes for 18-month through 5-year-olds focusing on academic and social growth as well as fine and gross motor development. Middle school programming for grades 6-8 features advisory teams, student government, electives such as horticulture, robotics and Israeli cooking as well as exciting trips culminating in an 8th grade trip to Israel!
The Hasten Hebrew Academy underscores the uniqueness of each individual student in personalizing an educational triptik for remedial and high ability students alike. State of the art facilities and low teacher-student ratio afford a safe and nurturing environment in which students develop confidence, character and responsibility to themselves and their community.
