8th GRADE HIGH SCHOOL PLACEMENT EXAM (BJE)
The General Studies (The College Board’s PSAT 8/9) exam is scheduled for Wednesday, November 16, 2016 at 9 a.m. at participating elementary schools. The Judaic Studies exam (The BJE’s) is scheduled for Sunday, November 20, 2016 at The Frisch School as well as other locations in the metropolitan area. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
After an application is received, prospective students have the opportunity to sign up for a “day at Frisch”, when they will have an opportunity to sit in on classes and see the school in action. Visits may only be arranged for students who have submitted an application for admission. They are limited to designated dates, and must be arranged in advance by clicking here.
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.
MECHINA PROGRAM – SHAY SCHOLARSHIP
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 BJE 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 email@example.com.
MATH PLACEMENT EXAM
All accepted students who plan to attend Frisch must take the Frisch Math Placement Exam. Students are not expected to study for this exam. The purpose of the exam is to determine the student’s comfort level with various math functions enabling us to appropriately place students in a math class.
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.
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.
