Though relatively new in the world of education, blended learning has engaged and inspired students in a dramatically new way.
Employing the best practices in e-learning, coupled with experienced educators and mentors, (blended) learners have reached new heights of thinking and creativity, all the while learning the skills they will need to face a challenging future.
Our school is blended Jewish.
We will offer our learners Jewish Studies courses, Hebrew and a full range of (God willing and Ministry approving) Ontario accredited courses in a 21st Century learning environment: personalized, collaborative learning, and direct instruction and project-based learning enhanced by online learning and digital tools and resources. Our Jewish and general studies courses will be selected from the finest content providers on the market, while others will be developed by a team of Toronto’s best and brightest Jewish educators.
We expect to open in 2018 and (God willing and Ministry approving) will be fully certified to offer Ontario SS credits as well as a broad curriculum of Jewish studies courses.
Our projected tuition will be $15,000.00.
Costs will be reduced through use of minimal administrative staff, use of cloud-based services and web-based resources and tools, and, most importantly, a strategic allocation of teaching resources. Our teaching staff will consist of a combination of master teachers who will design and deliver classes and onsite educators who will assist students with both secular and Jewish learning. We will also have advisors who will supervise the academic, social and spiritual growth of each student.
We believe that this model will be attractive to several types of students. We appeal to the student who would like to accelerate their learning as well as the student who might need more time to more thoroughly meet curricular expectations. We appeal to the student who would like to have greater control over their time and their routine. We appeal to the student who is an unconventional learner for whom the traditional classroom just doesn’t inspire.
We also appeal to families who acknowledged the importance of a K-8 day school education, but not necessarily the traditional Jewish high school experience. We also appeal to families for whom the current cost of Jewish high schooling is prohibitive.
In short, our program is probably for you or for someone you know.
