Tucson Hebrew High offers Hebrew language classes accepted in some school districts*for one high school language credit per year completed. In order to receive credit, students are required to pass the course by participating in class, completing all assignments and exams (including those missed due to absence) and accumulating no more than 2 absences per semester. Students receive letter grades which are reflected on high school transcripts. Placement exams are given to all new students; continuing students are expected to advance to the next level of Hebrew. Credit is issued at the end of the school year and students must complete both semesters and have tuition paid in full to receive one credit.
New student placement exams must be completed at registration.
*Amphitheater School requires pre-approval of Hebrew for Credit by the student's counselor and Principal before course work is begun. Some private and charter schools accept credit, see Principal for confirmation. St Gregorys does not accept Hebrew for Credit. Beginning with fall 2010 freshmen, Catalina Foothills High School no longer accepts Hebrew for credit.
Mitzvah Credit Hours make it possible to work Hebrew High into your busy life by providing an alternative learning program for one semester of Judaic Studies classes.
Here is how it works: Each Mitzvah project (see the "Mitzvah Board" at Anshei Israel) is given a value depending upon the length of the project, time needed to prepare or train for the project, etc. Values translate to credit hours. Complete 30 credit hours and you earn enough credits to substitute for an entire semester of Tuesday classes. Up to half of these hours can be fulfilled with projects outside Hebrew High with permission from the Principal. (A reduced tuition fee plus formal registration is required during the semester.)
*Seniors are provided with a breakdown of units completed and requirements for a Diploma of Graduation. A Certificate of Recognition is presented in all other cases when the "seniors only" requirement is fulfilled. All Seniors participate in the graduation ceremony.
