Historique

Located on Sydney’s North Shore, Masada College is Australia’s first Jewish international co-educational school.

In 1962, a group of Jewish parents on Sydney’s North Shore set up the North Shore Jewish Kindergarten. In 1966, realising that the future of the North Shore Jewish community would depend on the existence of a Jewish Day School, they established Masada Primary School. The school was housed on the premises of the North Shore Synagogue in Lindfield.

A high school was established in 1982 and the following year, it was relocated to the newly-purchased campus in St Ives (now known as the Michael Faktor Campus). Initially, the high school had 60 students in years 7 and 8, and an early learning centre was also created. In addition, the campus also became home to the new Kehillat Masada Synagogue and in 1990 the Rachael and Reuben Pelerman Centre was added to the campus. The Sir Asher Joel Synagogue was extended and upgraded in 2003, along with the campus’s resource centre.

By 2014, Masada College had left its Lindfield site and consolidated on one campus in St Ives.
