Admissions Policy

The application process to Politz Hebrew Academy begins with a meeting between the family and the Head of School. Once it has been established that the school is a good fit for your child, an appointment is set up for an interview with the Head of School and the Menahel (for boys).

After the interview, a formal application is submitted and financial arrangements are made. The admission process is complete, and the child is welcome into this wonderful school.
