The General Studies California Achievement Test (CAT E/SURVEY) exam will be scheduled in the fall at participating elementary schools. The Judaic Studies exam (JSAT Level 8) is scheduled for Monday, November 25, 2019 at the participating elementary schools. Students are required to take both exams and must register at their current school. If you are not able to register through your current school, please contact Shelley Hill at The Jewish Education Project at



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.



Student visits are limited to designated dates, and must be arranged in advance through our online application.



Parents are invited to attend informal sessions with our principal, Rabbi Eli Ciner, and other members of administration. They will be held in different parents’ homes throughout the Frisch community. Additonal Information Sessions are held at school. Parlor meeting dates to be announced.



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.



Our Mechina program is for students who have no formal Jewish education. Applicants must have the ability to read Hebrew and are exempt from the JSAT LEVEL 8 exam. 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



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. The Placement Diagnostic will take place on March 29, 2020.



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.
