YULA is a Modern Orthodox Yeshiva High School, dedicated to cultivating an unwavering commitment to Halacha, Torah values, outstanding academic achievement, and exemplary moral conduct.


YULA’s mission and underlying principle, laid out in the Three Pillars of a YULA Education, is that we stress the PRIMACY & RELEVANCY OF TORAH, an UNCOMPROMISING GENERAL STUDIES curriculum, and CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT at the highest level. As a proud Yeshiva high school, our aim is to instill within our students a passion for Torah learning, refined middot tovot, and love for Medinat Yisrael.


We dream big at YULA. That’s because we have great aspirations for our graduates. A YULA graduate is able to live with his feet firmly planted in two distinct worlds: the Beit Medrash, with the skills, inspiration, and passion to make daily Torah study a lifelong pursuit, as well as the broader world around us, with the education and training that will open every possible academic and professional opportunity, ultimately leading to a passion-driven career path. Graduates of our yeshiva leave with a firm foundation in both Torah studies and general studies, as B’nei Torah who are firmly rooted in Jewish tradition, ready to make an impact on the wider community. Armed with deep and meaningful relationships with fellow classmates, rebbeim, and teachers, they are poised to make growth a lifelong pursuit.

Our goal is to instill in our students a love of learning, cultural sensitivity, and a deep understanding of our world both in and outside the classroom.

Our mission: We open our doors every day to create a dynamic learning community in which each child grows into their best self.

Take one look at our historic ivy-covered brick buildings, and you’ll be instantly transported to a different time and place – to a beautiful, tucked-away gem – an oasis in the heart of the San Fernando Valley. Here, we offer individual attention and small instructional groups, all the while nurturing relationships, developing globally-minded citizens, and demanding every student’s personal best. Our dedicated faculty, low student-to-teacher ratio, and wonderful learning community further set us apart, as do the smiles on our children’s faces when they willingly participate in everything from classroom discussions to public speaking opportunities.


The vibrant, diverse, and supportive Country School community is a place where students are able to explore their unique voices, traits, and talents, and where each voice is honored and respected. Focusing on project-based curriculum, and fostering emotional intelligence, TCS students engage in learning that is collaborative, empowering, and revelatory, while developing self-awareness, personal character, and resilience. Students do not receive homework until the second semester of Fifth Grade and, instead of assignments, have the freedom to let their interests and passions guide their learning at home.
