Portrait of a Graduate

What is a typical Barrack student like? 

No two students at Barrack are the same. Each student is exposed to our rigorous intellectual environment and deeply rooted Jewish values and finds their own way to cultivate wisdom, courage, and kindness.

So what does a Barrack graduate look like?

Our alumni graduate with a love of learning, a sense of wonder about the world, and a commitment to caring for others. They have become television anchors, award-winning filmmakers, lifelong Jewish scholars, published authors, and global health advocates. Some have achieved distinction as Rhodes Scholars; Fulbright Fellows; and Tony, Oscar, and Emmy Award winners. Many have become trailblazers in our Jewish, American, and global communities.

A Barrack Graduate is:

  • A creative critical thinker

  • An engaged community leader

  • A thoughtful collaborator

  • An effective communicator

  • A compassionate global citizen

  • A resilient lifelong learner

  • A knowledgeable, committed Jewish adult
