          There is no investment more important and meaningful than the investment in our community’s children.

          Meyer Prep’s exceptional program is only possible with support from our local community donors. Like most independent schools, Meyer Prep relies on financial support to deliver an outstanding education to our students, as tuition covers only a percentage of the operating expenses of the school each year.  Thank you for your continuous support.

MISSION

Meyer Preparatory’s mission is to serve the Greater Palm Beach Jewish community with an outstanding Junior Kindergarten through 8th Grade Jewish Community Day School experience rooted in Torah values, academic and extra-curricular excellence, Tikkun Olam, and support for the State of Israel.

 

Our goal is to create:

 

EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION
Our school aims to use the Jewish ethos of hard work and study to produce graduates of the highest caliber, accepted to the most prestigious institutes of higher education. Meyer Prep promotes academic excellence as a central goal. Graduates of our school will master advanced studies in both the arts and sciences. In addition, the concept of team membership and participation is stressed through athletics and visual and performing arts.

 

PROUD, KNOWLEDGEABLE, AND COMPASSIONATE JEWISH CHILDREN
Our philosophy is firmly rooted in Torah and is dedicated to the global community of Jews and the State of Israel. The Meyer Prep student is one who is exceptionally well-rounded, learning in an environment that establishes harmony between Hebrew language, religion, Jewish culture and a variety of advanced secular studies. Hebrew language, the vehicle of Jewish renaissance, will be taught as the portal to our collective past, present, and future.

 

JEWISH VALUES
Our school emphasizes the development of ethical and moral values from a Judaic point of view. Civic responsibility and participation is emphasized. Our school places great importance on the concept of social action. Meyer Prep stimulates an awareness of Jews around the world, as well as a strong focus on human rights for all people. It emphasizes tzedakah (philanthropy) and creates an awareness of inequities. “Tikkun Olam” focuses on how we, as individuals and as a community, can help improve ourselves and our world.
