Day School Advisory Committee

The Day School Advisory Committee is composed of current parents, educational professionals, ADAT leadership, and alumni whose role is to support our professional staff in carrying out our School’s mission. It consists of committees, such as: Finance, Strategic Planning, Marketing & Communications, Admissions, and Development, to advance our efforts in these specific areas.

Though the Committee is composed of 50% current parents and 50% members of the community who have a vested interest in the institution, all members will have the ability to directly contribute to our “village”, and to positively impact our community and the education of all Adat Ari El students.
