The Torah Academy is a Chabad Jewish day school in Johannesburg, South Africa. It comprises a Boys' High School, a Girls' High School (on a separate campus), a Primary School and a Nursery School. The Mission of the school is to "provide and promote the highest quality Jewish and general education to a diverse community of Jewish children... [and] to cultivate students to reach personal excellence, and to be responsible members of society."  Although the school is Chassidic Orthodox, families of all levels of observance are welcomed.
The school provides a Kodesh (Jewish Studies) curriculum "combined with a strong secular studies program within a single framework."  Kodesh studies  comprise Torah (Chumash, Navi, Mishna and Talmud), Halacha (Jewish law), Hebrew language, and Jewish History; at the Boy's High School, studies are within a Mesivta environment. The secular program  follows the national and provincial standards,  and students are fully prepared for writing "Matric"; pass rate are generally very high,  and students often achieve competitively in these exams. 
The main campus, purchased in 1980, comprises a stone building with stained glass windows on approximately 11 acres (45,000 m2) of lawns and gardens, playing fields-including netball, basketball and soccer fields, recreational facilities, classrooms, a computer/media centre, science laboratory, a pre-school department and an administrative block, (Lubavitch House), which contains the offices of the dean and administrator. There is a dining room, boardrooms, printing room, kitchen, and the Torah Academy Shul  on premises.
