JWeekly.com reports about a nondenominational Jewish high school offering self-paced individual learning and low-cost tuition, The Pre-Collegiate Learning Center, which is expected to open in central New Jersey in September, 2011. The school has been bolstered by a $50,000 grant from the Avi Chai Foundation. Its projected tuition: $5,000 a year. The grant from Avi Chai was given with the promise of more funding if the school commits to meeting certain milestones. The schools founders expect the school to be self-supporting within several years. One of the school’s major lures is its tuition, considerably less than that of other day schools. 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 portal pages through which they will access computer-based instructional materials, including lectures conducted or prerecorded by off-site instructors. Students’ progress also will be tracked online.
