LOCATION AND FACILITIES

The Flo and Morris Mizel Jewish Community Day School, founded as Heritage Academy, is housed in the Charles Schusterman Jewish Community Center (CSJCC.org), located on the Zarrow Campus of the Jewish Federation of Tulsa (www.jewishtulsa.org).

The Jewish Federation manages the school’s facility and provides a safe and secure building, with many opportunities for the school to use the various campus facilities. Heritage Academy, founded in 1975 and housed at Congregation B’nai Emunah, moved to the Jewish Community Center, having outgrown the synagogue facilities. Since that time, the school has been provided the opportunity to use a number of spaces in the Schusterman Center, including the classrooms which were extended into a school wing on the south side of the building.

In addition to the classrooms, the school utilizes:
