Madregot Program: Transitioning to Schechter after Kindergarten
Stepping Up to a Jewish Education
The Madregot Program is designed for new students applying to Schechter in grades 1-8. The program varies at each grade level, offering academic support in Hebrew language. The Madregot Program also helps new students develop a sense of belonging and friendships to ensure a successful social transition.
Families are invited to visit Schechter for a tour and interview. As part of the admission process, prospective transfer students spend a day at Schechter shadowing a grade-level Schechter buddy and experiencing a vibrant, energetic typical school day. During this visit, prospective prospective students are assessed by one of our faculty members in general and Judaic studies.
New students in grades 1-8 come to Schechter with a wide range of general and Judaic studies academic backgrounds. We are thrilled to offer differentiated instruction that opens doors to Schechter's unique combination of a rich Judaic studies and unparalleled general studies program.
For more information, or to schedule a visit, contact Stephanie Maroun, Admission Officer, at 617-630-4625.
