    Our Mission

    The Yeshiva of Central Queens is dedicated to providing our students with the best possible educational, social and emotional experience in a Torah environment. YCQ recognizes the unique qualities of each student and encourages the development of self-knowledge and awareness in a loving and accepting environment. Together with a strong academic program in Judaic and General Studies, YCQ imparts ahavat Yisrael, her people and her history. In addition, we instill an understanding and appreciation of the Hebrew language, Medinat Yisrael and our heritage.

    Our Vision

    Our goal is to cultivate in our students a desire for knowledge and a love for a Torah way of Life. We want to celebrate each achievement as they journey through our stimulating educational environment where they will find a high standard of learning, along with mutual respect and warmth; where every student feels welcome. Through a partnership between administration, faculty and parents every child will be guided to reach their fullest potential and gain a set of moral values based on honesty, integrity, trust and good judgment.

    Our History

    The history of the Yeshiva of Central Queens (YCQ) dates back to 1940 when New York City had 11 yeshiva day schools located in the other boroughs. Parents who wanted a yeshiva education for their children had to subject them to long daily commutes or have them live away from home. As a result, YCQ was established in 1941 to fill the need for quality local yeshiva education; reaching all parts of the large and continually growing borough of Queens and surrounding communities. After almost eighty years later YCQ remains a beacon of excellence in Jewish education. Thus bringing to fruition the dream of the Yeshiva of Central Queens founders, that a high-quality, nurturing Jewish education is always available and never far from home.
