Explanation of Elective Course Offerings

TVT offers a broad assortment of elective courses. We are able to do this by offering select electives every other year. When students build their four-year academic plan with their college counselor in preparation for upper school, close attention should be paid to the curriculum guide. With careful planning, a student will be able to avail themselves of all possible elective courses throughout their upper school experience.

Explanation of Graduation Requirements

Tarbut V'Torah (TVT) students graduation requirements exceed top university expectations. Most students in Grades 9-12 may take up to eight courses: English, History, Math, Science, Hebrew, Jewish Studies, and two electives. Many students choose to use one of these elective periods to double up on an academic subject in which they are passionate.

The term elective is used to describe any courses taken above and beyond departments graduation requirements (e.g., AP Biology, Journalism or AP Psychology). Course offerings may change to accommodate interest and enrollment. The dual Jewish Studies and General Studies curriculum helps students hone their critical thinking skills as well as make deep connections between the academic and the personal. Unless otherwise noted, successful completion of a course is shown by earning a grade of C- or higher.
