Preparation for outstanding colleges and seminaries
Every fall, out 10th and 11th graders take the PSAT exam. In late winter of
grade 11 we send home information explaining the SAT/ACT testing programs and schedules.
We recommend that students begin exploring colleges and seminaries starting in spring of their 11th grade and take the tests through fall/winter of grade 12. With advice and assistance from our staff, they can then complete their applications.
We're very proud that over 90% of our graduates choose to spend an extra year of intense Jewish learning at seminaries in Israel, the US and Canada – seminaries including:
Ateres Bais Yaakov
Bais Yaakov Intensive
Binas Bais Yaakov
(Perhaps that's why so many seminaries choose Providence as a stop on their recruitment trips to America.) We also visit our graduates at their schools in Israel to see firsthand how they're doing.
Our graduates then go on to universities such as Columbia, Brandeis and Xavier, as well as colleges including Stern, Touro and Thomas Edison.
NEAT graduates attending seminaries often receive one year of college credit, so that their year of intense Jewish study counts as their first year in college.
