Our Mission & Values

Our Mission

The mission of TanenbaumCHAT is to challenge, support, and prepare students to live lives of high moral character, intellectual curiosity, Jewish commitment, and civic duty.

Our Values

Our values ensure that our school is both a school of excellence and significance.


We develop students’ intellectual curiosity and thereby prepare them for the rigours of university life and beyond.


We educate teens to act on a moral vision that is grounded in the belief that every individual is created in the image of God.


We deepen students’ connection to their Jewish roots by showing them how Judaism is timeless, meaningful, and relevant to their lives.


We help students develop a sense of responsibility to the State of Israel with all its complexities and the global Jewish people in all its diversity.


We teach that achievement without contribution lacks significance and that life becomes more meaningful when we reach beyond ourselves.
