Imagine a Judaic after school program where kids don't want to miss a day. They come in with a smile and leave humming a Hebrew song. As you enter, you can hear the sounds of lively discussion, singing and laughter. Imagine a child who feels the warmth and spirit of Judaism.

Welcome to Aleph Academy, an innovative educational program in Palm Desert. Aleph Academy was created as an offshoot of Sunshine Circle designed to bring its dynamic programming to elementary aged students.

The mission of Aleph Academy is to provide and promote the highest quality after-school Judaic education to a diverse community of Jewish children.

Our aim is to nurture and build the foundation of our children's Jewish identity through an interdisciplinary educational approach where students are taught a wide spectrum of Judaic knowledge and Hebrew through stories, art, drama and music.

Our carefully planned curriculum, talented staff and community involvement will no doubt leave a lasting, positive impact on the life of each child enrolled in Aleph Academy.

We look forward to an exciting year of learning and growth.
