Your choices drive your educational experience. You may study from two to six hours each week, with a four-hour minimum requirement for the graduation track. The curriculum is elective-based, with the exception of a one-hour mandatory class from the core curriculum. Hebrew language classes are offered utilizing a curriculum developed in partnership with Hebrew at the Center. We also offer intermediate and advanced classes in Hebrew literature tailored to students with day-school backgrounds. In addition, Prozdor offers students the opportunity to extend learning beyond the classroom with courses in the visual and performing arts, Shabbatonim and trips across the country and around the world.
Where and when are Prozdor classes held?
Classes are held on Sundays at Hebrew College and throughout the week in Newton, Mass.; Lexington, Mass.; and Nashua, N.H. Makor middle-school classes take place midweek at out partner synagogues.
We endeavor to make the admissions process as simple and personal as possible. Throughout the year, Prozdor representatives visit synagogue schools, day schools and other Jewish programs to introduce Prozdor to prospective students in the community. To schedule a visit to your institution, please contact Recruitment Coordinator Evan Parks at 617-559-8815 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also invite prospective students and their families to visit the Hebrew College campus for prospective student visiting days. On visiting days, families can take tours of the school while it is in session, see the campus, visit classes and hear from a panel of current students, parents and administrators about the Prozdor experience. For families who cannot attend one of the scheduled visiting days, private tours are available by appointment.
How to Apply
Prospective students must make formal admission to Prozdor by completing the student application. The application must be submitted to our office along with a deposit and, if needed, a financial aid application or Tuition Management Systems application. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but we do ask that you return them as soon as possible to enable appropriate planning for the coming school year.
Once your application has been processed by our office, we will schedule a personal interview with you. The interview is a chance for you to get to know one or more members of the administrative team before school starts as well as an opportunity for us to get to know you. Students taking Hebrew-language classes will also take a Hebrew placement examination at this time.
Course registration takes place online and begins in late August for the fall semester and in mid-December for the spring semester.
If you have any questions about the admissions process, please contact Recruitment Coordintor Evan Parks at 617-559-8815 or email@example.com.
