The Menachem Mendel Academy’s (MMA) mission is to revolutionize Jewish education and create happy children who are also compassionate, highly skilled and rooted in a servant-leadership worldview. MMA accomplishes this through student-centered academia, holistic wellness, environmental preservation, cutting-edge technology, and (of course) fun.

“At MMA, education is a way of life,” says co-founder Chaya Mushka Ben-Shabat. “We nurture and educate the whole child, including their physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual wellness.”

Menachem Mendel Academy is built and developed around the needs of each individual child. The students’ learning is centered around three educational pillars: Jewish life, academic excellence, and everyday life skills. The pillars are all based on one overriding philosophy: making sure that students know themselves for their strengths and not for their challenges.
In addition to academics, MMA also places a strong emphasis on personal development and life skills, including: time management, emotional management, communications skills, leadership, goal setting, home management, nutrition, money management, and long-term planning.

At MMA, students take frequent field trips and learn by doing in a very hands-on environment that places an emphasis on technology, service, art, music, and sporting activities.

MMA is currently enrolling for boys and girls, grades one through four, and offers kindergarten, preschool, toddler, and infant programs for children as young as six-weeks-old. Their campus is located at 6140 E. Thunderbird Road in Scottsdale.
