For incoming middle school students, we require two letters of recommendation from your child's teachers: one in math and one in English, with an optional third letter of recommendation from a teacher of your choice. For those entering our upper school, you’ll need three letters of recommendation from your child’s teachers: one in math, one in English, and another in a subject of your choice. Your child’s current teachers will automatically receive our electronic recommendation form when you submit the application online, and they will submit it back to us through the same system.
Please download and print the records release form within the application. Once signed and completed, please give the form to your child's current school so they can send their most up-to-date transcripts. If you are unable to print the form, please download it here.
As part of our application process, students will visit school either virtually or in person. During the visit, they will be paired with a host student, attend classes and meet their peers and teachers. Student interviews, including a brief writing sample, will be completed on that day as well.
Applications are considered individually by the Admissions Committee. Students are considered for admission to Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy based on evidence of the applicant's desire and potential for success in a dual college preparatory/Judaic Studies program. Families who have applied by Friday, January 15, 2021 will be notified of the admission decision by March 1, 2021. Enrollment contracts are due two weeks after an offer has been sent. A completed online enrollment packet and an enrollment deposit are required to reserve a student's place at Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy. The enrollment deposit is non-refundable and is applied toward the final tuition payment of the year. Those applying after the January deadline are considered on a space-available basis and will be notified on a rolling basis as the process is completed.
