Jewish Academy rings in 37th year


Jewish Academy of Orlando students are all smiles as they head back to the classroom. Shown here are (l-r) Jules Soll (second grade), Adam Crasnow (fifth grade), Marc Homburger Jacobs (fifth Grade) and Aaron Meyers (fifth Grade).

It was all backpacks and smiles as the Jewish Academy of Orlando began its 37th school year on Tuesday, Aug. 12.

When asked about the new school year, second grader Noah Talsky said, "It was a good day... all the kids in second grade get their own laptop!" and eighth grader Ashlinn Thomas stated, "It was so much fun; it was easier to get into the same routine."

A new school year is full of optimism and possibility, and the Jewish Academy has it in abundance. With new Head of School Alan Rusonik at the helm, the Jewish Academy is poised for a period of unprecedented growth and opportunity. Returning to the Jewish Academy is Principal Shari Wladis, who most recently served as interim Head of School as well as a dynamic and committed faculty with 93 percent of the teachers returning from last year.

For the second year in a row there is a vibrant kindergarten class and an even stronger first grade. "My goal," Rusonik stated, "is to retain as many of these children as we can and build from that foundation."

For more information or to arrange a visit to the school, please contact Alan Rusonik, Head of School, at or 407-667-0713.
