Welcome to Farber Hebrew Day School – Yeshivat Akiva
We credit our strong fifty-year presence within Detroit’s educational landscape to our parents and students who remain committed to Farber’s mission as a Modern Orthodox, Zionist, college-prep Jewish Day School.
Farber Hebrew Day School is an educational journey. We are privileged to have our students with us from Early Childhood, through Elementary, Middle School and High School. Playing a key role in our students’ growth from childhood through adulthood is a truly rewarding attribute, unique to FHDS. Our dual Judaic and General Studies curriculum is tailored to students’ developmental and intellectual capacities, both engaging and challenging to meet 21st century learning standards. As Modern Orthodox Jews, our graduates enter the adult world shaped by Jewish tradition, equipped to live within that tradition while actively participating and contributing to the larger world around them.
We welcome you to the Farber Hebrew Day School journey where your child will grow in mind and spirit from Nursery 2 through 12th Grade and beyond. Our parents and students embrace the Farber journey, viewing its experience as a roadmap for life-long learning, professional achievement and community leadership. At FHDS, your child receives the ultimate gift; a foundation in Torah, a lifetime of success, a strong and real bond with the religious Zionist movement.
