URJ Heller High (formerly NFTY-EIE) is an intensive academic program and is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. All instruction is conducted in English with the exception of the Hebrew Ulpan (language instruction), and any other foreign language instruction.
The educational structure of Heller High includes small classes and small group tutorials ensuring that students fulfill the requirements of their home high schools while immersed in the study of the history, culture and land of Israel. At the conclusion of the program, students receive an official transcript. The staff works closely with parents and schools to plan a special curriculum that fits into every participant's academic schedule of required courses. Students can arrange to take the Advanced Placement, PSAT, SAT & SAT Subject Tests, and ACT examinations while in Israel.
