Giving It is the goal of The Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Educational Campus to turn our students into the citizens of tomorrow. Research reveals that Jewish day schools profoundly influence young scholars for the better. In particular, attendance at a Jewish day school for seven years or more creates an indelible impact upon identity. Students with this rich background demonstrate the highest academic self-confidence in college. They resist social pressures that lead to risky situations and behavior. They become more involved in campus life. They build strong identities and connections. They express a stronger sense of responsibility toward addressing the needs of society by influencing social values, helping those in need, volunteering their time and seeking careers that allow them to be of service to the larger community. Tikun Olam One of the fundamental tenets of Judaism is social responsibility, whether it is through Tzedakah (doing justice by giving charity), or through Tikun Olam (fixing what is wrong with the world). At The Adelson Educational Campus students of all ages know they must be guardians of their community and are organizing Tikun Olam projects throughout the year. Community service provides students with important opportunities for personal growth and helps them develop compassion and concern for others. Students are encouraged to step outside of their comfort zones, where the greatest possibilities for growth lie. A worthwhile service project can have a deep and lasting impact on one's own life and the lives of countless others. This is why it is an essential element in an Education for Life. Diversity The Adelson Educational Campus accepts students of all faiths and affiliations. We contend that students who interact with diverse students in classrooms and in the broader campus environment will be more motivated and better able to participate in a heterogeneous and complex society. By creating a diverse community, we are preparing our students to be the citizens and leaders of tomorrow.
