A small school
with a big heart

Welcome to Yavneh – a coeducational, Modern Orthodox Jewish day school for children from crèche to Year 12.

The Yavneh Difference

Built on strong Jewish values, Leibler Yavneh College seeks to educate with the purpose of creating Torah and Israel-committed youth. The Yavneh experience is one of belonging, where all students are encouraged to act with kindness and derech eretz.

Educationally, Yavneh has a holistic focus, with the outcomes measured including both academic and personal excellence.

Ready to Enrol?

Yavneh is described fondly as a small school with a big heart and students consider themselves to all be a part of one big family. All families who embrace the College vision and mission are welcome.

We welcome applications and run our personalised tours all year round. We are so pleased that you are considering Yavneh and we cannot wait for your family to join ours.
