What does it mean to have a Modern Orthodox education?

Torah and Science, of General and Jewish culture is what gives us a unique identity. We embrace tradition and the modern world. We strive to produce well-rounded Jews ready to face Jewish life in a multifaceted world.
Where do students go after graduating from Yeshiva Atlanta?
At YA we help our students get where they want to go and excel once they get there: Yeshiva University or a Yeshiva in Israel, training for the US Army at West Point or training for the IDF, Georgia Tech or M.I.T., Ivy League or the best state universities. We have sent our students to all of these institutions and they have excelled because YA gives each student the best of both worlds and prepares all of them to be the best they can be.
What about sports and extra curricular activities?
Sports and extra curricular activities promote health and build character. We are the only Jewish high school in Atlanta who participates in the Georgia High School Athletic Association.

Our fully equipped weight room is the center for fitness training available to all students.
