Gratz Academy (formerly JCHS)

Gratz Academy, the high school program of Gratz College, engages teens in meaningful learning and community building experiences through live, online Jewish Studies and language courses. 

  • Earn high school or college level credit for foreign language classes (Modern Hebrew, Biblical Hebrew, or Yiddish)

  • Connect and converse with other Jewishly curious teens

  • Learn with Gratz College faculty - from anywhere, with any connected device.

Gratz Academy’s dual enrollment program prepares students for the rigors of higher education in a supportive environment as they explore Jewish texts and topics in a digital community of peers.  

Founded in Philadelphia in 1895, Gratz is the oldest independent and pluralistic college of Jewish studies in North America and the first institution of advanced Jewish learning to accept men and women on an equal basis. Gratz Academy (formerly JCHS) continues Gratz College’s 125-year tradition of excellent Jewish learning, meaningful mentorship, and relationship weaving with teens and young adults.
