Akiva School
School · 1968-

Akiva School is a private Montreal Jewish day school founded in 1968 by Rabbi Dr. David Hartman and a group of parents. The school's original location was at the Snowden YM-YWHA, located on the corner of Westbury and Cote Ste-Catherine.

After moving from its Snowden location to the Beth El Synagogue in Town of Mount Royal, the school experienced several years of declining enrollment and budgetary restraints. In 1988, the school moved again, this time to the school building attached to the Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue. A more central location, coupled with new leadership, stabilized the school and rapid growth soon followed.

The school was founded on a vision of being a community that "inspires lifelong learning, religious growth, an enduring connection to the Jewish people and the State of Israel, and a commitment to making the world a better place." Akiva school offers education from kindergarten to grade six, following provincial curriculum as well as Judaic Studies (including Hebrew). A Section Francaise was added to the school to accomodate students who did not meet provincial elgibility requirements for an English school certificate.

As of 2009, the school had an enrollment of 350 students.
