Academics. Citizenship. Character.

Emet Classical Academy is a Jewish preparatory school for 6th to 12th graders on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

We are committed to the pursuit of human excellence in every academic and cultural field and the perpetuation of Jewish, Zionist, and American exceptionalism. Our academic program focuses on the best of Western culture, the foundational ideas of Jewish civilization, and the advanced study of math, modern science, art, and music. Emet welcomes families of any background and aims to prepare our students for lives of Jewish purpose and civic leadership.


Emet believes that educated Jews have a responsibility for Western civilization. We combine the rigorous training of the mind with the cultivation of virtue and appreciation of beauty. In every class, conversation, and encounter, we seek to kindle the Jewish and American spirit.

Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.
