Since 2013, Hebrew Academy has invested heavily into expanding its character education curriculum and programming spearheaded by the School Psychologists. At the Elementary level, thanks to a prior Day School enhancement grant, Hebrew Academy launched and implemented Project Gevurah, a Positive Behavioral Support program explicitly teaching students what behaviors in different school settings demonstrate respect, responsibility, and safety. Additionally, in 2016, Hebrew Academy introduced the cloud9world program introducing students in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade to different character traits throughout the year including gratitude, compassion, courage, kindness, amongst others.
