JCHS offers various programs, each of which carries certain credit and course requirements. You can select your classes based on your goals. When you complete the requirements of your program, JCHS awards you the relevant diploma or certificate. You can also enroll in programs for personal enrichment or to satisfy synagogue confirmation requirements. JCHS advisors help you select the appropriate courses for you. The more you learn, the more credits you earn.
Teens who were matriculating at different JCHS branches in 2014-2015 or earlier can still earn the certificates they were working towards! As long as you are matriculating at JCHS in some way – whether through our monthly program for 11th -12th graders, through our weekly on campus programs, or through our online classes – you can continue transferring in credits until you reach your goal! Teens who were working towards the Teaching certificate but cannot make it to campus on a weekly basis are welcome to take our Education Class online through our JOLT program.
All certificates and diplomas are awarded to students who complete 12th grade at JCHS.
