Confirmation Academy

Confirmation Academy

Continuing Jewish Education

Kol Ami has one of the highest retention rates of post–B’nai Mitzvah Religious School students in the region. Each year, approximately 85 percent of our B’nai Mitzvah students choose to move on to Confirmation Academy.

The Curriculum

Our Confirmation Academy (for students in grades eight through ten) deepens our high school students’ Jewish education and challenges them through interactive dialogue and discussion. Our highly qualified faculty motivate the students to explore their own Jewish identity through history, current events, ethical questions and cultural activities.

In the Confirmation year – grade 10 – our students study extensively with the rabbi and collaboratively write a unique and creative Confirmation-Shavuot service expressing their personal experiences with Judaism.
