The Schechter School of Long Island is a conservative Jewish Day School in Nassau County, New York, known for small classes, a rigorous academic program, and a warm nurturing environment.

At Schechter, we believe strongly in an integrated educational model, in which students acquire general and Jewish studies simultaneously and synergistically. All of our students take a wide variety of classes including English language, history, mathematics, science, engineering, computer science, Hebrew language, Spanish, visual arts, drama, music, Tanach, rabbinics and Israel studies. This integration of such a wide range of subjects reflects our belief that Schechter students should “have it all.”

SSLI is a NYSAIS accredited school. Our general studies classes align with New York Regents requirements. However, these guidelines comprise merely the starting point for our academic rigor. We offer Advanced Placement classes in over fifteen subjects in mathematics, science, history, English literature, psychology, economics and the newest AP Capstone.
