The ATT is the hub for quality education, funding and advocacy to empower Chicago area Jewish day schools. Our vision is for all children to achieve their individual potential as learners and thrive as productive, committed and communally involved Jews.
We achieve this by directly supporting school leaders and teachers through:
Comprehensive professional development
Instructional coaching and administrative support
Piloting models of Jewish educational excellence
Coordinating with outside agencies
Engaging the community in educational programs and opportunities
We have been serving the greater Chicagoland Jewish community as the central agency for religious education since our founding in 1929. Currently, the ATT has an enrollment of 3600 students in its schools and its summer programs.
As the supervisory agency of a network of more than 20 regional schools, special education and learning differences programs, the ATT plays a prominent role with each segment of its schools’ populations. Not only does the ATT provide direct resources to its schools and teachers, it also supplies students and parents with crucial programming and educational services.
We assist in curricular planning, provide professional development of teachers and supply a host of educational resources to schools.
