Our high school program is designed to provide our teens with a Jewish environment in which to learn and to socialize. Our teachers include local rabbis, community members and include professors and students from area colleges.
Gesher meets Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Students eat dinner together from 6:30-7:00pm. The rest of the evening is divided into two periods, 7:00-7:45 and 7:50-8:30.
The Gesher school year is divided into three trimesters (September-December, January & February, and March-May). Students are presented with a menu of possible classes & have a chance to meet the teachers. They are asked to choose classes that interest them the most. Based on the students’ choices we plan our year with 2 classes offered each period. Classes offered will be changed each trimester.
