BENEFITING: Jess Schwartz Academy
A unique feature of JSA’s academic program is 11th grade study abroad in Israel, which serves as an extended opportunity for students to speak Hebrew and broaden their understanding of Hebrew-speaking peoples. In preparation for this integrated educational experience, students partake in a Modern Israel course. The course encourages students to engage in dynamic discussion and is led by the faculty members who will accompany the group to Israel.
During the study abroad experience, students participate in four weeks of intensive learning in Israel. Jess Schwartz partners with Alexander Muss Institute for Israel Education, which provides dynamic bilingual teachers who lead all discussions and seminars and also serve as tour guides, ensuring a fully integrated educational experience.
We want to make sure that every 11th grade student is able to take part in this fantastic experience. As you can imagine, it is extremely expensive to organize this program,. Your donations help subsidze the cost of this trip for our 11th grade students and ensure that our Study In Israel program can remain part of our curriculum for many years to come.
