Welcome to Heichal Admissions

Dear Prospective Parents,

Thank you for exploring Heichal HaTorah for your son. Heichal is dedicated to providing a classic Yeshiva education alongside a superior General Studies program in a culture infused with excitement, warmth, and passion for growth.


We believe that a key measure of a talmid’s success is his love for learning and excitement for Yiddishkeit. Choosing a high school is a critical decision that impacts the direction your son will take for the rest of his life, and we look forward to helping you learn about why Heichal might be the right choice.


Heichal has earned a reputation as a yeshiva that blends a high level of Torah learning and academics while ensuring that our students also have access to activities that enrich them beyond the classroom, including diverse clubs, sports, trips, and shabbatons. Rabbi Stechler and I are always available throughout the admissions process to help you learn about our yeshiva. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me or Rav Stechler to set up a personal meeting to discuss your son’s future at Heichal.
