Welcome to The Rudlin Torah Academy website, where you can glimpse a picture of the magic that takes place in our school every single day. In RTA, children learn to love learning, explore the beauty of our heritage, and strive for greatness in an environment that is open, warm, and nurturing.
In RTA we teach the whole child, inspiring a thirst for knowledge and wisdom that is intellectual, ethical, and spiritual. We are a diverse family, welcoming students and families from all Jewish backgrounds into an environment that is inclusive and accepting.
Nearing a half-century of service in the Richmond Jewish community, RTA has enriched the lives of over 1,500 alumni with an outstanding dual program. Our graduates are superbly prepared to meet the challenges of the modern world as evidenced by their acceptance and success in the best private and public school programs in Richmond. Their Jewish knowledge and confidence radiates into every facet of their lives. RTA students have a well-deserved reputation in our community as independent thinkers, creative problem-solvers, and leaders of their peers.
The recipe for our track record of success is three-fold:
Our talented teachers are the best in the field. In addition to being innovative, brilliant educators, they are also exceptional human beings, who truly love and value every single child who is entrusted into their care.
Our parent body is loyal, supportive, and passionate about our school. Their countless hours of volunteer efforts help us to be a home and a family where there is always something exciting happening!
And our students – our raison d’etre – make us incredibly proud every single day, with their abilities to shine in and out of the classroom, radiating a joyful success in all their endeavors.
Accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools, RTA is also a proud member of the National Association of Hebrew Schools.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our website, and invite you to come visit our school in person anytime. We are confident that when you do, you will see just what we mean by “that RTA magic!”
All the best,
Rabbi Yosef Bart, Principal
