College Guidance

The college admissions process at Barrack Hebrew Academy is a cooperative venture, involving the school, the students and their parents. During the process, our students learn about themselves, their interests and their goals through self-assessment, research and decision making.

Our college guidance team assists students in identifying and attaining goals, researching and choosing appropriate colleges, working on applications and essays, honing interview skills, and applying for scholarships and financial aid. Students meet individually and in classrooms with the college counselor on a frequent and timely basis. Programs are held throughout the junior and senior year with college admissions officers, financial aid authorities and experts on Jewish life on campus and programs in Israel.

Barrack students are accepted to a broad range of colleges and universities. Our ultimate goal is to help each student find the school that best suits his or her interests and needs.
