New Jewish high school aims for $5,000 tuition

Bolstered by a $50,000 grant from the Avi Chai Foundation, a nondenominational Jewish high school offering self-paced individual learning and low-cost tuition is expected to open in central Jersey in September.

… The school expects to keep costs down through lower expenditures on teaching staff than a typical Jewish day school. Instead, students will be assigned to their own computer portals through which they will access computer-based instructional materials, including lectures conducted or prerecorded by off-site instructors. Students’ progress will also be tracked on-line, said Gellman. Youngsters will work at their own pace, although “highly qualified” teachers will be on site to assist and keep order.
