The Rabbi Jacob Pressman Academy was established in 1986 as the educational center of Temple Beth Am located on La Cienega. It house three schools: the Day School, serving more than 360 K-8 students; the Early Childhood Center, serving more than 110 students; and the Religious School, serving more than 100 students. The schools encourage both intellectual growth and social and emotional development, and the classrooms use multiple modes of teaching drawing from language arts, creative arts, math and sciences, and athletics. The schools are affiliated with the Solomon Schechter Day School Association and are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Bureau of Jewish Education of Greater Los Angeles.
The School Kindergarten Expansion project will renovate a 1,700 square foot single-family home to serve as a preschool and reconfigure the main school building in order to connect the two properties.
