Executive Director | Akiba Yavneh Academy

November 25, 2021


Dallas, Texas
Executive Director
Start Date: July 1, 2022

Akiba Yavneh Academy (AYA) is a Modern Orthodox, coeducational school focused on providing a rigorous academic education of general studies and Jewish scholarship to students in early childhood through 12th grade. Located on a beautiful 8.5 acre campus in North Dallas, Akiba Yavneh helps students develop into responsible, confident, independent thinkers, lifelong learners, and active participants in a democratic society.

Yavneh Academy of Dallas (9th-12th) and Akiba Academy (Pre-K-8th), long co-located on the same campus, merged in 2019. This merger timing was unfortunate. Before the post-merger integration could be accomplished, along came the pandemic and everything went virtual.

AYA seeks an experienced leader to realize the benefits of the merger, to strengthen post-merger structures and systems, to tell the amazing AYA story of the high achieving students at every grade level, and to lead a team dedicated to excellence in both secular and Judaic studies. The position begins July 1, 2022.
