Join the VTT Family

WELCOME


Thank you for your interest in Vancouver Talmud Torah

VTT delivers an inspirational experience by blending the power of community with an outstanding academic program. The result is students who are lifelong learners, engaging the world through Jewish traditions and values. Starting with our exceptional early childhood program, the VTT educational approach promotes critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity, enabling students to acquire the knowledge, skills and confidence they will need to meet the challenges of a century in which change is a constant. Individual needs are met by recognizing and supporting diverse learning styles. In addition, students are encouraged to develop their unique strengths and interests through athletics, drama, music and the visual and performing arts.

Jewish families from a broad spectrum of religious, national and economic backgrounds are welcomed into our inclusive school community. Every member of the VTT family is valued.

The Value of a Jewish Education


VTT students come to appreciate the value of Jewish traditions, learn to communicate using the richness of Hebrew language, develop a vibrant connection to the State of Israel, experience the joy of Jewish practice and develop a uniquely Jewish lens on the world. With a solid academic foundation, our graduates are accepted to and excel in the schools of their choice. VTT alumni are leaders in their respective fields living lives informed by Torah and based on a strong moral compass grounded in Jewish ethics and teachings.
