RTA’s dual program includes an accelerated and enriched curriculum in both general and Jewish studies. In general studies, students in upper middle school perform on a high school level, taking classes which include algebra, civics and economics. The Jewish Studies curriculum includes modern conversational Hebrew, the study of Torah in the original text with commentaries, Talmud, Jewish philosophy, liturgy and history. Students in middle school analyze Talmudic case law and scholarly commentaries in their original Hebrew.

After-school clubs and activities, offered throughout the year, have included the following: Soccer, Karate, Drama, Gymnastics, Chess, Computer Coding, Lego Robotics, Boys and Girls Basketball, Conversational Spanish, and Art Enrichment.

RTA classes lead numerous community programs for organizations such as WJCC Grand Group, Beth Shalom Home, Jewish Family Services, and the WJCC Preschool.

RTA students routinely outperform their public school counterparts in standardized testing. Students in grades 4 and 6 receive the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. Students in 3rd grade receive the Cognitive Abilities Test (CogAT.)

The Rudlin Torah Academy was founded in 1966 as the Richmond Hebrew Day School to provide Jewish youth in grades K-8 with an exciting combination of Jewish and general studies using both traditional and innovative instruction. RTA is a member of the National Society of Hebrew Day Schools and is accredited by the Virginia Association of Independent Schools (VAIS).
