The Keystone Campaign: It’s a Whole New World!

Yeshiva Schools of Pittsburgh is preparing Orthodox Jews for the challenges and the opportunities of a whole new world.

Yeshiva Schools of Pittsburgh has an international reputation for excellence in both Judaic and general studies. With support from parents, students, and faculty, Yeshiva Schools created a strategic plan to continue Yeshiva’s legacy of excellence into the next generation. The strategic plan contains more than 100 specific action items and includes transforming all campuses into joyful expressions of productivity and creativity, with specific attention being paid to three types of school spaces: teacher, student, and public.

The Boys School

To meet current needs and support growth, Yeshiva Schools has acquired the former St. Rosalia’s School on Greenfield Avenue. The Greenfield Avenue campus of Yeshiva will become the new home of Yeshiva’s boys school, and the convent will be converted into housing for out-of-town boys. This campus will add 48,000 square feet of academic space including 17 classrooms, science labs, multi-disciplinary facilities, common gatherings spaces, faculty offices, and a gym. Plans include outdoor space for recreation, including possible collaboration with Greenfield Elementary for a shared playground. This new campus will support enrollment growth from 150 to 180 boys.

The Girls School

Relocating the boys to the Greenfield Avenue campus will allow for repurposing Yeshiva’s Wightman Street and Denniston Street campuses. Renovations and upgrades to both sites will accommodate growth in the girls school (from 150 to 180) and The Early Learning Center (from 140 to 175). A new girls dorm is being planned on property already owned by Yeshiva, adjacent to the Denniston Street building.

The Campaign

To fund acquisition, renovation, and endowment objectives of the strategic plan, a $9 million capital campaign has been launched. Yeshiva Schools of Pittsburgh invites support from all those who value the Yeshiva mission to actualize the potential of the next generation of Torah-observant families who will then become the future leaders of their respective communities. These will be the leaders of a whole new world.
