This year, ACHS will offer 2 Hebrew language learning options for 3rd through 6th grade students:

Option 1: Tuesday In-Person Hebrew Pods at AC, Tuesdays 4:00 - 5:00pm 
 
ACHS students will meet in-person, in small leveled Hebrew groups, with ACHS teachers. Hebrew groups will progress at their own appropriate pace, and will be geared to the learning needs of each learner. 
 
Option 2: Hebrew Homepage (HHP) at Home, Privately scheduled, 30 minutes / week 
 
ACHS is partnering with Jewish Journeys, through The Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, in order to offer Hebrew Homepage (HHP). HHP is a highly successful online Hebrew learning platform in which participants study with a tutor one-on-one using a webinar platform for weekly 30-minute sessions. This program will allow students to study ACHS approved Hebrew curriculum at their own pace, at a time that works best for their schedule, from the convenience of their own homes. HHP offers curriculum options for beginning readers, for gaining reading fluency for prayerbook Hebrew, and Modern Hebrew for beginners. 
  • ACHS yearly tuition is the same this year for both Hebrew options, and registration is through the ACHS office. 
  • Hebrew Homepage students will sign up for their tutoring slot individually before the school year begins. 
PLEASE SELECT A CLASS FOR EACH STUDENT YOU'RE ENROLLING
