Akiba-Schechter’s lakefront campus is located in the historic Hyde Park-Kenwood neighborhood of Chicago.

Hyde Park is a culturally rich and ethnically diverse community located on the lakefront, just seven miles south of downtown Chicago. Hyde Park is home to the highly acclaimed University of Chicago, and has a history of social activism, political leadership, and community life; it is also the site of renowned museums, cultural resources and architectural landmarks, including: the Museum of Science and Industry, the Oriental Institute, the Smart Museum, the Robie House, and the Hyde Park Art Center.

Akiba-Schechter is a member of the Hyde Park Kenwood Council of Jewish Organizations.

The world-renown Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) is right down the street from the school, and classes make use of it frequently.
