Post-Secondary Studies in Israel

A year studying in Israel is a transformational, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students to continue their Torah study in a focused and intense environment where their bond to Eretz Yisrael and Am Yisrael will be strengthened.

In effect, Hebrew Academy High School promotes the idea of a six-year program, where the sixth year is spent in Israel.  We encourage students to seriously consider studying in a Yeshiva or Midrasha program in Israel post-high school. Accordingly, we offer  support and guidance in all areas of the decision-making and application process so that families can make an informed decision on whether an Israel program is right for them and which institution would be the best fit.

To explore specific Yeshivot/Midrashot or programs, please consult one of the following web pages:
