8TH GRADE HIGH SCHOOL PLACEMENT EXAMS

The Judaic Studies exam date and administration locations are to be determined. If you are not able to register through your current school, please contact Shelley Hill at The Jewish Education Project at shill@thejewisheducationproject.org.

 

INTERVIEW

A student interview and a brief meeting with the student’s parent(s) will be scheduled by the Admissions Office once your application has been received. You will be called to arrange a mutually agreeable time. The objective of the interview is an exchange of knowledge – the student and parents learn more about Frisch and the school learns more about the student. Parents will also have an opportunity to tour our school at that time.

 

TRANSFER STUDENTS

Applications from students who want to transfer into Frisch from other schools are accepted on a rolling basis. All students considering transfer must complete an application for admission.

 

MECHINA PROGRAM – SHAY SCHOLARSHIP

Our Mechina program is for students who have no formal Jewish education. Applicants must have the ability to read Hebrew. Applications to this program are accepted on a rolling basis. Mechina applicants may apply for a Shay Scholarship. The Shay Scholars Program is a merit based program which defrays a portion of Frisch tuition. For additional information contact admissions@frisch.org.

 

PLACEMENT DIAGNOSTIC

All accepted students who plan to attend Frisch must take the Frisch Placement Diagnostic in math and Hebrew language. Students are not expected to study for this assessment. The purpose of the assessment is to determine the student’s comfort level with various math functions, while the goal of the Hebrew assessment is to determine the student’s comprehension and writing skills, enabling us to appropriately place students in math and Hebrew classes.

 

TUITION ASSISTANCE

Frisch offers tuition assistance to families based upon financial need. An application and supporting documentation must be submitted after registration. A scholarship committee conducts a confidential review of all applications and determines the amount of assistance to be given. Learn more by clicking here.
