The academy, 100 East Woodbury Drive in Harrison Twp., was founded in 1962 and is Dayton’s only Jewish Day School. The school “offers Judaic and Secular Studies instruction to children in Kindergarten through 8th Grade,” according to the school’s Web site.
Phone calls from the Dayton Daily News to academy and synagogue officals were not immediately returned on Friday, Feb. 26.
Jay Weiskircher, Oakwood’s Deputy Assistant Manager, believes the demographic changes may play a role in the academy wanting to relocate its students to Oakwood.
“The kids who go there, more of them are living in the south suburbs,” Weiskircher said. He added that he was told by synagogue officials that at least 10 of the academy’s students live in Oakwood.
