Biographical / Historical

Yeshiva High School of Atlanta was founded on August 28, 1970 by ten individuals who were concerned with the rising tide of intermarriage and assimilation of Jews in the Atlanta area. The first class consisted of 12 students. It was a modern Orthodox high school with a mission to offer well-rounded, Torah-based, college-preparatory education to young Jewish men and women. The school, located in Doraville, Georgia, a northeastern suburb of Atlanta, was later known as Yeshiva Atlanta, or “YA.” On July 1, 2014, the school merged with the Katherine and Jacob Greenfield Hebrew Academy, a Jewish day school serving children from kindergarten through 8th grades. The new combined school, known as the Atlanta Jewish Academy, opened for the 2014-2015 school year at Greenfield Hebrew Academy’s campus in Sandy Springs, a suburb north of Atlanta. Atlanta Jewish Academy, like Yeshiva Atlanta before it, is governed by modern Orthodox principles.
