New Seminars for 11th- and 12th-Grade Students Coming This Winter

Tikvah Online Academy offers high-level seminars—with small classes, master teachers, and spirited discussions—for students interested in Jewish ideas, Zionism and modern Israel, American democracy, and Western civilization.

✔ All classes are capped at 12 to 15 students.

✔ Seminars meet live over Zoom for spirited conversation and debate. All weekday classes are scheduled in the evenings, so they will not conflict with the school day. Sunday sessions will take place in the late mornings or evenings.

✔ Courses are open to all students regardless of their educational backgrounds. The application process is simple but selective.

✔ Tuition is $200 per course. Full scholarships are available for any family with financial need.

Applications are not currently open, but you can learn more about our course offerings by browsing previous seminars below, or click here to sign up to receive more information.


"Teaching for Tikvah’s Online Academy has been a joy from the very first class. My students are active and engaged, and Tikvah gives us the luxury of time to think, talk, and inquire about materials we’d never get to in a traditional classroom, or that we’d have to rush through. Whether it’s a class on Golems or on Shakespeare, I leave every class session energized and excited to come back—and I hope all my students feel the same!"
