About Us

The Society for Advancement of Education (SAE) of Jerusalem, established in 1962, is a non-profit organization with the goal of bridging social and educational gaps in Israel while cultivating educational and moral excellence among youth.

SAE has 12 secondary educational institutions – schools and residential campuses. The institutions are diverse in character, vision and structure, and they are located in Jerusalem, Kfar Adumim, Kfar Saba and Netanya. In addition, we initiate and develop innovative pedagogical programs and operate national and international projects in the field of immigration and absorption.

What is important to us?

We believe that each student is unique in his or her own way and therefore we initiate, develop and operate personalized educational responses, adapted for the youth at the various day schools, residential campuses and other educational programs.

These are intended to create opportunities for excellence and to maximize and develop the educational and moral potential of the students, so they can integrate into the academic environment and find their place among the chief roles and public leadership positions at the center of Israeli society.

The aim for innovation and excellence is embedded in all our activities, at the personal, institutional and organizational levels. Excellence is expressed in cultivating personal and teamwork skills, in striving to create improved organizational structures, and in training and cultivating the educational teams.

In all our institutions and programs, we aim to establish and pass on social, humanistic, democratic, Zionist and pluralistic values, that encourage respect for others and celebrate diversity.

Here everyone is entitled to quality education and everyone belongs.

Our Schools and Residences

Among our educational institutions are: a Haredi Yeshiva (Hachmey Lev), an Ulpana for girls (Talya), schools that integrate different streams (Reut, K.A.N. Combined High School, Dror), academic high schools (Boyar), and residential campuses for excellence of different kinds (Ein Karmit, Steinberg, Boyar, Ort Netanya). We are currently working to establish the first Arab school in the SAE.

We promote students who deserve promotion, support student immigrants (Matefet), youth immigrants (Na'aleh) and students with learning differences (Hidden Sparks, Niot Learning Centers).
