“Everybody is a genius.
But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it’s stupid.”
Your daughter was born to swim.
Why force her to climb?

WE GET HER FEELING SUCCESSFUL
Our elementary program offers a comprehensive dual curriculum aligned with NYS standards, in both English and Yiddish-speaking tracks.
A warm, inclusive environment and a dynamic staff of highly devoted professionals within a Bais Yaakov-type school ensures your daughter a successful, fulfilling school experience.
“Ichud has been such a relief for us. She is getting her individualized learning, but she’s in a mainstream school, so she doesn’t feel like she is in special ed. So inclusive, so motivating.
Amazing program, I highly recommend.”
“We tried P3 and private tutoring, but it didn’t motivate her enough. Now she’s happy in class and not lagging academically. Ichud encourages her to persevere and strive to do her best.”
Miriam Shvartz (Mom)
She shouldn’t have to learn the hard way
High School Division
Where else do you have a high school program in the tri-state area for the frum girl who is bright, curious, and socially savvy — and for whom learning and language is a struggle?
Nowhere, that’s where.
Ichud really is one of its kind.
Ichud girls are motivated, mature, and self-aware. They love learning and life, are deeply committed to Yiddishkeit, and are goal-oriented to the max.
They may find it challenging to organize and recall information, articulate responses, follow the pace of a typical classroom, or maintain attention to task.
But with a little help and a little hope, they can hold their own.
Fortunately, we can demystify learning.
Many of our students’ challenges can be effectively addressed with research-based instruction. Over 90% of our students graduate with Regent diplomas, pursue distinguished careers, and lead successful lives as contributing members of the Torah community and broader world.
The proof is in their perseverance.
They’re competent and confident
