As part of Donna Klein Jewish Academy, the Seiff Learning Program, is designed for students in Grades 3-8 who benefit from a specialized educational environment to develop their strengths while supporting any areas of academic weakness. The Seiff Learning Program specifically serves students with average to high average cognitive abilities who have not reached their potential levels of academic success within a traditional classroom setting.  The program emphasizes a small student to teacher ratio while providing a structured learning environment. In the Seiff Learning Program, students experience a comprehensive Jewish values-based education that prioritizes each individual child’s learning needs.  
Admission to the Seiff Learning Program is based on a current psychoeducational evaluation that has been completed within the last three years. 
Program Highlights:
  • Personalized learning environment through which each student can experience success
  • An Individualized Student Educational Plan will be created upon entry to the program to support each child’s unique strengths and weaknesses.
