About Us

Our story

Imagine a school where every student is not just accepted but celebrated.

Where the community values dignity, and every student, parent, and staff member is addressed with respect and care.

A place where successes and joys are shared, and every student comes home with a smile on her face―every single day.

Where we believe in the light of every student and her ability to rise to her fullest potential. A place where challenges are seen as opportunities to grow, and the focus is on nurturing each student’s strengths, talents, and interests.

This is Ateres Chaya Mushka.

We believe that every student has something unique and valuable to offer to the world, and we work tirelessly to help them discover and develop their gifts. Our chassidishe chinuch is rooted in the belief that every student can rise to their potential, and we provide a supportive and nurturing environment to help them do just that.
Our History:
Our journey began in 2014 with a dream to provide a chassidishe education in a warm and nurturing environment. Named after the Rebbe’s dear wife, Chaya Mushka Schneerson, Ateres Chaya Mushka was founded by Rabbi Meir and Mrs. Leah Levine, who were inspired by the Rebbe’s teachings and committed to creating a quality educational experience for their students.

With just three girls in a humble basement, the Levines worked tirelessly to expand the school, and by the end of the first year, 12 girls were enrolled. Over the years, Ateres Chaya Mushka continued to grow and thrive, eventually moving to a larger location to accommodate the increasing number of students.

Our commitment to providing a holistic education that fosters personal growth and development for each student is at the heart of everything we do. In 2021, we added a preschool branch to our flourishing Pre 1A and elementary departments, and expanded our elementary division to include up to 7th grade.

Today, we are proud to offer full preschool and elementary divisions in a happy and warm environment. Our commitment to individualized attention and one-on-one studying with progress reports remains strong, as we nurture the spiritual and personal growth of each student based on the Rebbe’s guiding principles.

We know that a true HOME of Torah perpetually grows its base and increases its impact, and you are our greatest partners in making this happen.

Right now, we are renting the building that houses our beloved school. However, we know that in order to truly call it our home, we need to purchase it.

The owner has graciously agreed to keep the building available to us at the same price for the next two years, giving us a unique opportunity to secure our home at ACM.

We couldn’t have achieved all of our combined success over the years without the support of our amazing community, and we invite you to become a part of our movement to expand our home for our beloved students!

Please join us in supporting Ateres Chaya Mushka and making our school a home for every student.

How the

Rebbe

Guides Our School

At ACM, we are truly humbled and grateful for the wonders we continue to experience along the way. Since the inception of our school, we have always received blessings and encouragement from the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s Igros Kodesh. These letters have been a constant source of inspiration and have helped us stay true to our mission of providing an excellent Chasidic education to our girls.

We are constantly blown away by the direct answers we have received urging us to move forward and purchase our school building without delay.

 

With every step we take, we are reminded of the Rebbe’s love and care for our school, and we are filled with a sense of purpose and determination to continue his holy work. We are honored to be a part of this special community, and we invite you to join us in this journey of growth and inspiration. Together, we can make a difference that will last for generations to come.
What makes ACM Shine?
We take a holistic approach to education that focuses on building character, resilience,
and self-confidence.

Our goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment where girls can grow and thrive,
free from the negative influences of social media and other external pressures.

We believe that by nurturing the whole person,
we can empower our girls to become confident
and capable leaders who will go on to make
a positive impact in the world.

Quotes from

the Rebbe

With gratification I received the reports from anash in Morocco regarding the help and support that his honor gives them in their work of chinuch al taharas hakodesh… There is no sufficient means to explain the great brachos and success that the holy institutions bring, not only to the students who learn and are educated in them, but also to their entire family and all the members of their community…

…and may it be Hashem’s will that there should be a true progression, namely in a manner of steadily adding more and more, for with regards to anash, one can apply the statement of Chazal regarding a deer, that when the flesh [namely, the p’nimius] increases, automatically the hide [namely, the chitzonius] increases. In this case, this would refer to the necessary funds and the expansion of the institution. 

…and especially in regards to those who merited to take part in the institutions of Chassidus Chabad, upon whom our holy Rebbeim, the nesi’im of Chabad, starting from the Alter Rebbe, author of the Tanya, arouse mercy for everything they need in their personal affairs and also in their communal work…
