What to Expect Once on Campus

Once you are on campus, proceed to our main school entrance where either Aviva or Eli will meet you and take you to our College Guidance Suite. Our typical visits span approximately 45 minutes (for the presentation and Q&A session) and if your schedule permits, either Eli or Aviva would love to sit down for a few minutes to discuss any new and exciting updates pertaining to your school! 

Curriculum at Shalhevet

 

Shalhevet Advanced Studies (SAS) and AP courses

 

Like many other independent schools across the nation, Shalhevet's independently-designed, advanced courses focus on critical thinking, conceptual understanding, and student engagement with the material. These innovative courses allow Shalhevet to offer a more diverse and interdisciplinary portfolio of rigorous courses, while allowing students and teachers to explore subject matter in great depth. We have mostly transitioned from an AP curriculum to our own SAS curriculum. Our most talented students typically take a total of five SAS and/or AP courses, two courses junior year and three courses senior year.

 

Dual Curriculum

 

Shalhevet High School provides a dual educational program of General Studies and Judaic Studies that is intense and challenging for every student. The school day begins at 8:00am and concludes at 4:35pm. Students are enrolled in eight or nine academic courses each semester, and attend prayer services twice daily. Most students participate in demanding co-curricular activities, which further extend the length of their day. Requirements meet the California Common Core Standards and accreditation from Western Association of Schools and Colleges and Bureau of Jewish Education of Greater Los Angeles.

 

Judaic Studies at Shalhevet

 

Shalhevet’s approach to Judaic Studies focuses on the richness and relevance of tradition and encourages students to ask big questions about philosophical and theological issues of our day. The curriculum was developed from the ground up, implemented at all grade levels, digitized and awarded several prestigious national grants. To date, eight other Jewish high schools around the world have adopted this curriculum as well. For a list of UC approved courses at Shalhevet, please click here.
